Description: This coffee is sourced from family owned farms located on the slopes of the Inerie volcano in the Ngada regency of Flores, one of the big islands in the Lesser Sunda archipelago of Indonesia. Over the last decade, a growing number of farmer groups have pooled resources to improve upon processing coffee using wet-hulling techniques (called “Ngura” in the Bajawan language) similar to those found in Sumatra. Attention to detail is exquisite, reflected in the ripe cherry selection, raised bed drying, and hand sorting done three times before export. This cup is well balanced, low in acidity, and has a wonderfully delicate complexity. On the front end, you pick up on subtle floral, herbal, and spicy notes of cardamom, cinnamon, chamomile, and fresh lily, accompanied by a marshmallow sweetness. The body is light medium, and the sweet floral notes carry through nicely. The mouthfeel is very soft and creamy. It finishes very smooth, alongside a strong lingering note of cocoa powder, with floralness again carrying through.
Shelf Life: An unopened bag will remain tasty for five months due to our processes and packaging. We remove most of the oxygen from each bag during our packaging process and replace it with food-grade nitrogen to lovingly cradle these precious beans for a long time. We use the highest quality bags with one-way valves to retain the low-oxygen environment we create and allow our coffee to off-gas naturally.
