This coffee is part of SUCAFINA Lalisaa project, Lalisaa is a term used to describe something that is flourishing and growing. Historically a majority of Ethiopia's coffee producers have not been able to enjoy a direct relationship with the buyer of their coffee. This lack of transparency and equitable trade structure left most farmers with no incentive or knowhow to develop their crop, despite having the world's most diverse and distinct coffee. SUCAFINA has partnered with several stations and farmers to create a truly transparent and sustainable supply chain.

The Aladdo Washing Station is tucked behind the hills of Anfrara, a small town outside of Adola. Despite it being the smallest station we have partnered with, it has produced some great coffee. Its owner, Birhanu Mulatu, has been working in the sector for the last 12 years. Always quick with a joke, he makes our visits entertaining but also has a passion for coffee, wanting to produce only the best.

Our selection from this site is sourced from eight farmer groups, representing 278
households and 383 hectares of coffee land. This coffee cups clean, and bright with good body. Spicy sweet flavours and a kick of lemon like acidity take it to another level.

Filter Single Origin: Hartmann Estate

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Panama
Region: Candela, Chiriqui
Process: Black Winey

Varietal: Caturra, Typica
Altitude: 1260-1500
Farmer/Producer/Mill: Ratibor Hartmann
Flavour Note: Peach, mango, prune

Owned by the Hartmann family and run by Mr Rabitor, Hartmann Estate is well known for excellence in specialty coffee, having achieved success multiple times in the ‘Best of Panama’ competition which surveys some of the highest quality coffees in both Panama and around the world.

This particular lot has been developed using the ‘Black Winey’ process, which takes coffee cherries that have been ripened slightly beyond the ‘normal’ red cherry level and places them in an air-tight bag for 12 to 24 hours until the cherry starts to soften. The cherries are then placed on drying beds to allow for greater airflow and a slower, more even drying period. The results speak for themselves: this coffee boasts extremely complex and fruit-driven characteristics, with a beautiful acidity and round, juicy body..

Our Super Specialty coffee from Jairo Ivan’s farm, La Estrella, is proof that skill and dedication reap its own rewards. To create a superior and better value product, Jairo believes in using technology to increase coffee quality while decreasing the cost of production. Once the cherries are brought to the mill, they are put through the usual sorting process, but with the added innovation of a laser colour sorter. This allows workers to identify and separate perfectly ripened coffees to produce different lots.

The next stage is an 18-hour controlled fermentation process at 23-24 degrees Celsius. Instead of being subjected to high temperatures which makes the process difficult to control, the beans are carefully eased into the remaining fermentation/drying phase. The result is a high quality coffee that not only delights the senses, but requires less water and is more environmentally-friendly to produce.

Grind, brew, drink and enjoy!
