|Key flavor notes||
Grower (Pending)This is the brighter of the two new Glanmalure lots with notes of citrus supported by dark chocolate and a pleasant aftertaste. Glanmalure is the name of a specific area of Ngila and this is a well-developed lot from the main crop that is representative of our farm. We determine the trees that we are going to pick using a Brix meter, picking is selective and sorting is very intensive. The volcanic soil is rich in minerals, resulting in a cup profile with a structured and balanced acidity. Processing: After floaters are eliminated the cherries are de-pulped using a water-saving eco pulper. They then go to a demucilator where the fruit flesh is removed inside a rotating drum. Next, the coffees go to a fermentation tank and soak/ferment for up to 18 hours. The wet parchment goes to the sorting table to be cleaned of damaged or underripe beans and finally to African beds to dry under the sun for 1 to 2 weeks.
Glanmalure is a small specialty coffee farm near Ngila Estate Ltd in Northern Tanzania. We sit on the slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater. The farm has grown coffee for around 100 years in an altitude from 1600 to 1650 masl. We grow traditional varietals like Kent, Bourbons and SL28 and also new ones like Batian, Gesha and Pacamara. Our coffees grow under the shade of native trees and we are keeping about 80 ha of preserved original rainforest next to the plantation, going up to more than 1800 m high. This forest is connected to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and to the Serengeti plains. Our pesticides program based now for more than 5 years on natural measurements. We are using natural insecticides, like Neem extract. We work with compost but also with mineral fertilizers. We do traditional fully washed coffees with a water-saving Colombian eco-pulper. We use only 1 litre of water to pulp 1 ton of cherries. We also do honey processed coffees, naturals and carbonic maceration lot
