Java Sunda: Cirambai

$16.00

This wet process lot is from a few cherry collectors located in Patuha region of Ciwidey. "Collectors" are intermediaries of sorts who buy partially processed coffee and full coffee cherry from small scale farmers and then often process the coffee down to the dried seed/bean. Whereas many collectors create large blends of all the coffee they buy, Iyan and Gunawan pay special attention to separating by region, these smaller lot sizes adding a layer of quality control, not to mention more specific provenance. Most of the coffee in this lot is from around the villages of Tambak Ruyung, Patuha, and Indragiri. Farms span an altitude range of 1500 to 1800 meters, and typical varieties grown are Ateng types like Sigarar Uteng, and older Typicas. This is a fully washed coffee, which is pretty common in Java. The cup flavors come off very clean, and well-balanced, and in many ways, not unlike a clean washed Central American coffee. This is another beautiful Farm Gate coffee and an excellent choice for espresso.
