One of the most expensive coffee we have bought so far, comparable to geisha.
Anaerobic fermentation occurs in the fermentation vessel once the oxygen is discharged and replaced with N2, CO2, or another by-product of the fermentation process. Anaerobic fermentation is usually a slower process. In the mid-1850s, the French chemist Louis Pasteur produced anaerobiosis by boiling the medium to drive out oxygen and then introducing inert gas for cultivation. This traditional method induces a more intense flavor in the coffee.
This coffee is available 30th September onwards. This limited stock comes highly recommended. Make your reservation soon.
This exceptional coffee was dry milled and exported by Primrose, PLC. The coffee is grown by smallholder farmers living around the kabele (town) of Goromo, in the Oromia Region.
Most of these farmers own less than a hectare of land, and the coffee simply grown as a backyard cash crop. Coffee will usually be interspersed with other subsistence crops, such as sweet potato, mangos and avocados, but there are no other primary cash crops grown in the region. Hence the taste is truly special having exposure to a diverse variety of organic companion vegetation.
