* Direct Trade Nano-lot
Earlier this year we set off to create a special coffee for fans of extravagantly fruit-toned natural process coffees. This is it: a meticulously hand-sorted Natural Thai Typica Nano-lot, heavy with ripe strawberries and seductively fragrant.
It comes from the Doi Saket region of Thailand, near Chiang Mai, which is one of the oldest coffee growing areas in northern Thailand, and still mostly planted with heirloom typica trees.
The Doi Saket region tends to produce elegant, creamy and floral coffees, and when dried whole in the cherries, these flavors are amplified and enriched by the berry flavors from the coffee fruit.
Naturals are far more difficult and risky coffees to execute well compared with washed coffees, particularly in humid environments like Thailand. Thanks to our experience in Hawai'i we've been able to refine the challenging drying process over the last several years, and have worked closely with Beanspire coffee in adapting our techniques to Thai conditions. In order to produce a sweet, clean and ripe-fruited cup, the coffee undergoes careful hand sorting at several stages after harvest, then the drying is carefully monitored over 2-3 weeks to ensure even moisture and lack of unwanted fermentation. The result is a luscious coffee fit to replace dessert altogether.
This Limited Edition coffee is a special, Direct Trade collaboration with Beanspire Coffee in Thailand and coffee farmers Nui and Oi of Doi Sacket.
