Komodo Decaf Organic and Fair Trade ​SWP


Farm Description


Sigri plantation was established in the 1950's and rapidly gained a reputation that continues to grow.  All processing practices follow a system which insists on the highest standards and quality at every stage. Hand picked when red and fully ripe.  The cherry is pulped on the day of picking.   The fermentation process entails washing and drying over a 3 day period.  but unlike other washed processed coffees, Sigri's process follows this by total immersion in the water for a father day, which creates unique flavor profile.  The plantation employs a medium density shade strategy, using 2 types of shade trees.  this promotes even ripening of coffee cherries and provides habitat for over 90 species of birds.



Java Klasik Bean COOP ROBUSTA-Not Available ​


Here is some info gathered from the internet:

Robusta beans add a few positive aspects to the coffee drinking experience for the following reasons;

•               Robusta tends to produce more crème than Arabica adding to the presentation and potential coffee-art creations of your espresso coffee.

•               Robusta adds to the coffee experience that literally makes hairs on the back of your neck stand up. It adds the 'woo' and the blinking eyes where 100% Arabica can sometimes appear sweet, weak and nice ... but without character.

•                Having Robusta in the mix allows for an even finer grind of the Arabica (without choking the espresso making process) which is important when trying to extract the most aromatic oils. There is more hard shell in the Robusta which allows the heated water to still pass through the compacted ground coffee while extracting the oil from the fine ground Arabica as it goes.

•               Robusta gives consumers that morning ‘Hit’ they are looking for from their coffee. See the fat in the milk tends to mask the high notes of the Arabica bean, while the crème and more astringent taste of the Robusta shine through to give you a real morning jolt for those first few slips. Eventually the aromatic oils from the Arabica takes over as you continue to drink and you are still left with a pleasant caramel after-taste.

Mexico Turquesa Mountain Water Process DECAF


Because of the beautiful blue skies in the region where it is grown, this coffee is named “Turquesa,” after the precious stone. This area stretches up to the region of the city Yajalon and coffee is grown at an altitude between 900 and 1,100 meters. The coffee is characterized by large bean sizes and a round, balanced cup.

For decades this zone has been the center of political and ethnic conflicts. Although the situation seems to have calmed down lately, the so called “Zapatista movement” has prevented any large coffee farms from coming into existence. Therefore, the coffee is cultivated mainly by smallholders, often descendants of Indigenous tribes. These producers plant, harvest, and prepare the coffee by hand, sparing no effort to produce a product which makes them proud. To ensure that producers have the best chance possible of receiving a fair price for their product, we feel that it is our obligation to work with exporters that support these communities with social projects and use their transportation infrastructure to bring their product to market.

The harvest season is December through March. All the coffee is received in parchment, quality controlled, and transported to a high tech dry mill in Veracruz. After a second quality control, the coffee is cleaned, milled, and sorted to be prepared for export. This coffee has a quality control standard which allows for only 15 imperfections per 300 grams.

Cup Characteristics
Medium body, light sweet acidity, a hint of milk chocolate, caramel, citrus-orange, nice nutty notes.
