Blue Ayarza – Natural$20.00 – $98.00
Our first natural process from Guatemala, it has lower acidity than the Ethiopian naturals, while still having a fruity profile. Blackberry, mango are the first flavors we picked up, with guava, red currant following and just the most subtlest of chocolate coming through as the cup cooled. It feels like an Ethiopian natural without the acidity or strong citrus profile.
These beans come from the southeastern part of Guatemala, in a very rural, inaccessible, mountainous area above Laguna de Ayarza (locally known as “Blue Lake”), where there are less than 10 homes in total around its perimeter. Cold, deep and pristine, the lake is said to be formed by two massive volcanoes that collapsed into a large crater, parts of the bottom having never been found. The beloved lake is part of legendary folklore for the locals. Because natural process coffee beans have more rigorous requirements, only those grown in the 5,500-6,000 elevation are selected.
Due to the hilly conditions where the beans are grown, the natural process beans are transported to a neighboring region where there is flatter land available for drying them in the sun, with sufficient breezes to blow over them. Laid out in layers of 3-4″ deep, they are dried for 5-6 days while being constantly turned during the day. The cherries go from red or yellow to purple, and then black. They are then finished for a half a day in mechanical dryers, this final process helping to control the acidity and ensure a final dry process without any pesky rain showers that may cause re-absorption of rainwater.
Yirgacheffe Halo Beriti$20.00 – $98.00
This elegant Ethiopian bean offers complex yet silky flavors of black tea. The taste of peach, sweet sugar plum, honeysuckle and chocolate pair nicely with light floral aromas of lavender, ending with a delicate, pleasing, acidic punch. The soft flavors of this bean make it best served as a medium roast.
The farm collectives are located in Halo Beriti Woreda, in the Gedeb District region of Ethiopia, averaging about 6,500 feet above sea level.
The beans are hand picked, wet-processed and fermented for three days before being separated from the fruit. This process allows the beans to absorb the sugars in the coffee fruit, creating a stronger full-body flavor.
