From the Rotheca Womens Coffee Farm in the Kirundo province of Burundi comes this exciting new Micro Lot. Grown high on Bwinyana Hill at over 1700 M.A.S.L - this East African specialty coffee is extremely unique in flavour. While it does offer some of the traditional acidity from an African bean, this coffee is more of a juicy, stone-fruit like acidity of a white flesh peach or nectarine. Finishing out with an extremely creamy body and notes of milk chocolate.
The name of the farm "Rotheca" comes from the native African Butterfly bush - the Rotheca Myricoid. The women of Rotheca farm some beautiful coffee and process it using a 14 hour fermentation. Which imparts fruit forward notes onto this Red Bourbon varietal.
This stainless steel mesh filter from ABLE replaces paper filters... forever! Use comfortable in most size Chemex brewers or V60-02's, the ABLE Kone allows for more oil transfer to your cup - resulting in more full bodied brews.
Combine a standard pourover cone with a french press and you get the Clever Immersion Coffee Dripper. A unique single cup brewer that works like a standard pourover cone. However instead of pouring right through, the water stays in the reservoir, brewing the coffee as it immerses. Using a standard Melita #4 filter makes for an easy clean up, and a cup with the complexity of a french press, minus the solids and sediment. If you are looking to make pourover coffee without the complex technique of other standard cones, then the Clever is your best bet!
In western Ethiopia, a few kilometers from the Sudanese border, lies Bench Maji. A lush and wild jungle of sprawling forests and extending plateaus. It is right here that Gesha Village Coffee Estate grows some of the finest coffees in the world. The perfect storm of elevation, ample rainfall and climate, gives this Gesha 1931 cultivar its incredible flavour.
Gesha, or “Geisha” you may have heard about in Central and South American varieties of coffee. However it is in Ethiopia, in the Gori Gesha forest where it has been determined that the Panamanian Geisha bean was originally collected. The Gesha 1931 bean closely resembles the Panamanian Geisha bean as well as its profile – which boasts the sweet and juicy acidity of a Satsuma Mandarin (Sumo), dark honey and a finish with a hint of Bergamot.
This unique and flavourful coffee is available while supplies last. Hand roasted in small batches.
