Flores: Wet Hulled Wawo Wae

$16.00

We fell in love with Flores a couple of years ago and made it part of our offerings from the Sunda Islands and Oceania region. The farms where this coffee is from are in close proximity to the Wawo Muda volcano on Flores island, benefiting from the nutrient rich soil in this high altitude zone (1500+ meters above sea level). Farmers in this area tend to grow a mix of older Typica trees and S795, commonly referred to as "Jember", a natural mutation of Typica and Liberica. Coffee is typically traded through cooperatives or coffee "collectors", this being the latter. It's from three different collectors who gather from farmer groups in nearby areas such as Wolo Bobo, and Bajawa, all of it processed at a central station called Wawo Wae. This is another beautiful Farm Gate coffee and an excellent choice for espresso.
