This is the first collaboration for Niko Sunko and Arvind Khedun. This coffee is from Ethiopia, Heirloom variety, growing at altitudes above 1850 masl. Its a fully washed coffee with a double fermentation. Cherries are handpicked and ripened cherries are selected for depulping, the beans then go through the first fermentation phase for 18 – 24 hours. After the first fermentation beans are washed in clean water, the beans then go through a second fermentation for 24 – 36 hours, they are then dried on raised beds for 12 – 15 days. This process brings a more characteristic flavour a clean coffee with low bitterness.
