El Diviso

We're excited to release this Natural Bourbon Sidra from Nestor Lasso at El Diviso. It is our first time working with Nestor - his coffees have been used at coffee competitions, and actually featured in the winning routine at the most recent World Barista Championship.

This natural Bourbon Sidra started with collection of ripe cherries with a brix reading between 24 and 26 degrees. Initial fermentation starts in plastic totes for 48 hours followed by a thermal shock of 50C. The coffee is then placed into sealed tanks to start anaerobic fermentation, and inoculated with yeast type T58 Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a brewer's yeast). After 80 hours, the cherries are sent to drying - first with mechanical dryers for about 12 hours, followed by sun drying for approximately 15 days.

Gesha Village Lot 85

Established by Rachel Samuel and Adam Overton, the 471 hectare Gesha village is located in the Bench Maji region. In carefully selecting wild seeds from the Gori Gesha forest, they had aimed to replicate the natural environment of the forest by planting them alongside indigenous trees. The result is not only a coffee that is rooted in its ancestry but an agroforestry approach that aims to balance the commercial growing needs while preserving the natural environment.

Eight different zones, or sub-farms, comprise the village and named after nearby villages: Bangi, Dimma, Gaylee, Oma, Narsha, Surma, Shewa-Jibabu and Shaya. This coffee is a natural Gesha 1931 variety from Oma Block. Coffee is dried on raised beds for 30 days under a mix of sun and shade.

El Paraiso Strawberry

**AVAILABLE**

This is a double anaerobic fermentation of a blend of Pink Bourbon and Castillo commissioned for us.

Ripe whole cherries are selected, floated and first ozone washed. They are then placed into large tanks flushed with CO2 for anaerobic fermentation. During this first phase, coffee juices are extracted and undergo a separate controlled fermentation in a lab, combined with a selected culture of bacteria and yeasts. The cherries are pulped and undergo second stage anaerobic fermentation in mucilage with the extracted juices. After fermentation, coffee is washed with thermal shock (high temperature washing, followed by cold water). Final phase of controlled drying.

Don Eli Jacob #4

The story of the Don Eli Micromill spans several generations. Carlos grew up in coffee, with his father Eli having been a founding member of the famous CoopeDota - then a model for cooperatives. After several decades, the cooperative model fell out of fashion, with farms moving towards processing on their own farms. Through several timely moves, Carlos was able to acquire and establish his own wet-mill - Don Eli Micromill. Here, they are able to have more control over plantation and processing, with a focus on quality over quantity.

Further continuing the family tradition, this Anaerobic Natural processed Catuai Lot #4 is from Jacob (Carlos's son). He has since taken a lead role in managing the Don Eli family mill, and purchasing high quality coffees from Carlos to comprise his special prep lots.

Don Yano

Spending his childhood picking coffee cherries, it became a dream for Mauricio Jeremiez to one day own a farm. His wish came to fruition after moving back to Costa Rica from the USA and founding his farm in 2015. Starting small (and not having a full wet mill available), Mauricio kept to small and experimental lots, being highly selective of his coffees and those of others that he would process. This lot, from his uncle Don Yano, is one of those micro lots. Don Yano himself is a real old school farmer that believes in less is more as he continues to work in an incredibly sustainable way with nature.

El Paraiso Eco-Enigma

This is our third year with a regional coffee from El Paraiso - part of our staple seasonal selection. This is a recent arrival direct from El Paraiso. The coffee is Caturra and Castillo from Bolivar in Cauca Colombia, where producer Diego Samuel Bermudez Tapia was born.

Eco-Enigma is a process from El Paraiso that is applied to coffees from neighbouring producers - in this case, from Diego's place of birth. Enigma is a closed circuit air recirculation and temperature controlled system. It uses condensation and recirculation to minimize the environmental impact of processing while creating replicable conditions to dry coffee to between 10-11.5% humidity regardless of climate factors.

Um Espirito Santo

A pulped natural processed Catuai 81 variety from Fazenda Um's Espirito Santo estate.

Excerpt from Forward Coffee:

With Fazenda Um Espirito Santo, Um Coffee Co's secondary property of 28 hectares, began in 2015. A very limited region that resembles the high mountains of Central America. In 2019, this property was acquired by the Um Family, to work with some of the most exclusive and complex terroirs in Brazil. Espirito Santo today has the most promising coffee lots in terms of quality due to its similarity to other renowned regions of the world, bringing soft umami flavours such as tomato juice and high sweetness impact such as sugarcane. Due to its complexity and unique microclimate, Um Coffee is producing some new lots and developing intensely, processing techniques in order to unlock the regions full potential.
