Anaerobic & yeast fermentation lots
Edelweiss and Finagro are based on the slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater, the worlds largest unbroken caldera, a UNESCO world heritage site and the haven for scores of wildlife including elephant, rhino, lions and numerous antelope. Our family have held stewardship over the beautiful farms for 3 generations. A mixture of exceptional terroir, climate and good farming practices have driven our farms to produce consistently exceptional and well recognised coffees that are sustainable in production and in our environmental and social impact. Combined with our sharing our farms with numerous elephants, buffalos and occasionally lions provides for a unique coffee experience. We provide sustainable and consistent employment for more that 500 members of the community all whilst living in harmony with the abundant wildlife found through the farms.Translate

|Key flavor notes||
Seller (Pending)This nano-lot from Finagro Plantations was produced by adding yeast to the pulped cherries in a controlled environment. The fermentation process results in notes of red fruits and berries in the cup with a prominent acidity and complexity. This is the first year we experiment with yeast fermentation. For this lot, we chose a yeast called Intenso (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) from Lalcafé, intended to increase fruity flavours, mouthfeel and general cup quality. We found a tropical aroma and notes of ripe red fruit, apple, dark chocolate and a hint of rum supported by a smooth mouthfeel. According to Lalcafé, the Intenso yeast leads to "higher expression of terroir-driven flavours, the fruity characters, of overall quality notes and a decrease of bitterness and astringency perception even with a wet process with a short maceration duration". Due to the freshness of the sample - this coffee was processed at a later stage of the harvest season - you might also find notes of green tea as this coffee is still unlocking its potential. We have cupped this coffee 3 times so far in different stages of harvest and as both type and fully processed samples. It can be strange and puzzling (in a nice way) because the flavours are constantly developing. It's like watching a child grow...
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
