Rainforest Alliance Certified
Citrus, Floral Notes, Summer Fruit
This coffee is high grown in the rich, shaded volcanic soil of Laos. Producers use a blend of processing including; natural, semi-washed, fully washed, honey, wet-hulled and cascara. The most unique coffee to come across our cupping table yet. We finally found the sweet spot. Six different processes combine to make the beans diverse and wild. Greek olives sneak into the finish of this exotic coffee.
Producers use the Mandheling style wet-hull cherry selection and then beans are sun-dried. This process produces a cup that has distinct citrus and floral notes with summer fruit flavor and great balance. The farmer programs create and support programs such as dental camps in cooperation with doctors and creche for workers’ children providing childcare and educational opportunities.
Laos is part of the International Multi-location Variety Trial, which is led by World Coffee Research (WCR). In the project, 35 varieties of coffee are collected from around the world and then planted in over 60 test plots in 23 countries, resulting in widespread production and quality increases in as little as 5 years. With Creche for children of the workers, dental care, education, healthcare, gender equality and building community infrastructure, this coffee does good and tastes amazing. Strictly high grown, boasting SJ-33, catigua, TN01, Obata, Java, Typica, Bourbon and Geisha varietals, and a variety of processing methods, this single-origin shares qualities of the best of blends (and pulls an awesome shot of espresso). Medium-full body, excellent balance, and flavor notes of citrus, subtle floral notes, and summer fruits will delight and surprise the palate.
Great taste and quality
