Coffee of the week - #11-17

May 31, 2017

Coffee from Jacu Coffeeroastery. Delicious.

Now that we have so many roasters we collaborate with it feels like forever between each visit. And I do recommend you to let us know if you have any favorite! This week was a delicious lightly roasted African-bound coffee.  

 

This coffee is from a private producer in the Kebele (small town) called Werka and is made up from cherry deliveries from smallholder farmers in the West Arsi area. It’s a Grade 1, meaning the producers have put a lot of effort into the selection and grading during processing. Privately owned communal wet-mill in Nensebo – West Arsi, collecting cherries from various smallholders. This is coffee from one of the privately owned washing stations in Nensebo. Nensebo is one of the woredas in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. Hills and mountain ranges characterize 70% of this woreda; the rest consists of arid lands and plateaus. Only 4,6 % had access to natural drinking water. Coffee is an important cash crop with over 5,000 hectares planted.

Second coffee of the week Nelson Trujillo from Colombia and the Tarqui region. Tarqui is in the Central Cordillera of the Andes Mountains, with coffee growing in altitudes up to 2000 masl, and with rich and varied micro climates. In the northern part the main harvest is in July-August and the mitaka or mid-harvest is in November-December. In the southern parts this is reversed. This means it is possible to have fresh coffee in from Tarqui all year. The farmers are small, having 1-3 hectares each, and are often organized in groups
