Hacienda La Claudina “El Mandarino”

The plantation has a size of around 18 hectares and possesses an own water treatment plant. The combination of altitude, moist warm mountain wind from the Choco rainforest and fertile volcanic soil is ideal for the production of our exclusive highland coffees. La Claudina lies at an altitude of 1300- 1780 m.

The coffee 100% fully washed processed and consists of the Columbian variety Castillo, which is characterized by its resistance to disease. The harvest takes place between September and December. During this time, almost 60 plantation workers harvest and select the fines beans.

The Hacienda La Claudina Colombia is characterized by a full-bodied, complex flavor; a combination of fruity and floral notes where citrus and cassis flavors dominate. A great single origin espresso for those who are looking for something special and appreciated!.

  BRASIL

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.

  PERÚ

Tunki

This awesome coffee directly from the Cooperation CECOVASA in Peru was chosen as the best coffee of the year in the 2010 award ceremony of the Speciality Coffee Asociacion of America ( SCAA) . The same year Tunki was awarded the first place at the Rainforest Alliance Cupping for Quality, and a year earlierit was chosen at the coffee Expo Peru as the best Peruvian coffee.

This Tunki-organic coffee is grown by local indigenous people; the Quechua and Aymara, which are small-farm families and pioneers of organic coffee in the Tambopata and Inambari jungle valley, near the Ticicaca Lake in the Andes. The plants have not received artificial substances such as fertilizers and pesticides. It is harvested by hand, and the coffee cherries are washed with natural spring water. CECOVASA was founded by the small farmer familys themselves hence guaranteeing a socially equitable income.
