Anfilo Waldcaffee

This coffee comes from the Anfilo forest around Anfiloo, the mountainous region of Wällägga. Here coffee has been grown for more than 500 years in its original genetic form -mostly wild- and carefully prepared. We buy directly from the cooperative Cueillette where aprox. 100 small farmers with micro plantations of around 2-10 acres are gathered and who have specialized in specialty coffee. Coffee from the rain forests of Ethiopia is known for its spicy taste. In this coffee one can also find unusual flavors of honey and floral notes.

Yirgacheffe Grade II

The Yirgacheffe coffee is one those coffees, which one may rightly describe as perfect. Decades of improvements in quality and ideal environmental conditions have made him a highly sought-after and one of the best coffees in the world. He is considered the peak of the Ethiopian coffee. Its hallmarks are its typical Yirgacheffee-spice and its incomparable citrus. Our gentle roasting is both for infusion in the French press / hand filter as well as for full-automatics.


Ruanda

Mt Huye

An excellent coffee from the "Land of the 1,000 Hills". Balanced fruity nuances and a full mouthfeel (body) distinguish this variety (Bourbon vermelho). It grows in 1,800 - 2,000 mts on sand and clay soil near the Mount Huye. We recommend it specially for the filter and the French press. Special in this coffee is the harvesting method "selectiv pick". With this method, only the really ripe (red) coffee cherries are hand-picked from the tree. This provides an exceptional quality, and a very complex flavor profile.


Kenia

Ntongorro

This coffee comes from the East Valley Farm, which was founded in 1999. It is located in the eastern province Imenti Nthibiri in Kenya. The region is rich in humus and clay soils and thus ideal for the cultivation of coffee. The Kenya Ntongoro is processed fully washed and has a phenomenal balance of floral and fruity notes combined with a full, elegant body. We recommend this rarity especially for filtering process.

Brazil

Fazenda Dutra "Pedra Grande"

Particularly high green coffee with outstanding quality stands for the plantations Dutra, which is located at a height of 900-1.300 mts in Brazil's Minas Gerais region. Direct cooperation with the Friars Dutra provides comprehensive information and excellent quality for each type of coffee to the last detail. This quality chain stretches from the country of origin, to the transport, up to the finishing and packaging in where the coffee is roasted. For example, the varieties of the Dutra plantation are transported in jute bags packed in 30kg (60kg-bags are common). This for several reasons: It makes the job to thos who carry them easier. The breathable packaging in jute also allows an airflow and thus prevents the formation of mold during transport and storage.

For us, this piece of information, in addition to a comprehensive quality assurance, has another advantage; a precise adjustment of the roasting profile for each variety of coffee in order to find the optimal taste and to offer customers a coffee enjoyment at the highest level. Among the different varieties of different lots of the Dutra fazenda that we have in store, there are also very rare yellow Arabica varieties due to a very small annual harvest.

Fazenda Dutra: "Duas Pedras" +50 años

The specialty of this exceptional variety is that the ripe coffee cherries of the coffee trees are older than 50 years. These trees do generate less income than their younger colleagues, and the cherries ripe slower. However, the variety of flavors in the bean and the density of the coffee bean do increase. This allows us to remove more incompatible acids during the roasting process thus perfecting the taste profile. In addition, the coffee is "late harvest" processed - meaning that the cherries are dried on the coffee tree - which gives the coffee an extraordinary basic sweetness and hints of caramel and candy.

Mexico

Maragogype

Maragogype of Mexico is a great rarityand we are glad to offer it again.

This year´s Maragogype comes from the Santa Caterina plantation from the Chiapas region in Mexico. It is exceptionally spicy in flavor, very harmonious and with a pleasant fine floral acidity. A round, and very soft coffee with hints of honey.

This variety was first discovered in 1876 on a Brazilian plantation of Arabica coffee in Bahia, where it probably arose by mutation, and was named after the nearby town Maragojipe. Its leaves are dark and broad,and its flowers, fruits and seeds are considerably larger than the other Arabica species. The dried beans are bluish-gray in color. The typical characteristic of Maragogype is the long beans of an enormous size, which are about a third larger than other coffee beans and therefore known as giant elephants or beans.
