Komodo Decaf Organic and Fair Trade ​SWP-Available Late May 2018


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.

Peru Royal Water Process DECAF Organic


PERU ORGANIC ROYAL SELECT WATER DECAF is sourced from lots that the Royal team has selected based on cupping evaluations. After selection, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The beans are then introduced to a solution concentrated with coffee solubles that extract the caffeine without extracting the coffee’s particular flavor.

 PERU ORGANIC APROEXPORT is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Asociación de Productores y Exportadores de Café Rodríguez de Mendoza (APROEXPORT), which was established in 2013 to support coffee producers from communities near Rodríguez de Mendoza, Peru. On average, each producer cultivates between two and ten hectares of land with a diversity of crops including coffee.  APROEXPORT provides training on organic management and environmental practices aimed at improving coffee quality and yields to increase farmer earnings
