April is fresh arrival month! Kicking off the string of arrivals are the following coffees from Indonesia, Guatemala and Mexico.
Following these, in two weeks, the first container of microlots from Ethiopia is scheduled for arrival
Into Indonesia – Kerinci microlots
Our long-awaited selection of microlots with 4 different processing methods is available now from our warehouse!
These coffees were produced by members of the Koerintji Barokah Bersama cooperative in the Kerinci regency, Jambi province of Sumatra. In total, the cooperative has 250 smallholder members. Common varieties are Sigarar Utang and Andung Sari.
At the cooperative’s mill, they took the traditional wet-hulled process to a new level with the wet-hulled honey process. In addition to that, they also produce washed, honey processed and wet-hulled coffees.
