For this nano-lot, we chose coffees from Edelweiss Oldeani Estate and a yeast called Cima, from Lalcafé. Cima yields bolder fresh and fruit flavours in coffee when added to the pulped cherries in the maceration tank, hence the fruity and citrussy cup profile of this coffee. This is the first year we experiment with yeast fermentation and chose to work with yeasts from Lalcafé, whom we met during World of Coffee in Berlin, as the strains they produce are meant to preserve characteristics of the terroir and better express the potential of each varietal. Due to its freshness, the sample might present notes of green tea and some dryness. These flavours will fade as the green coffee rests. 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...

Shipping
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.
