Rob Says: TRUST THE PROCESS

At the Koerintji Barokah Bersama washing station they are trying to step away from the traditional Wett-Hulling processing. 

With the WASHED LOT they pulp the coffee and properly dry the beans (in parchment) on the patio.

With the HONEY LOT they pulp the coffee, and immediately dry it on the patio for a short period of time. When the coffee is still high in moisture content, it is milled at the central dry mill. After this, they are transferred to raised beds.

The difference in taste is both spectacular and very different:

With the washed process the mouthfeel is truly unbelievable!

The honey gives a more complex cup with big body and spicy finish.

WE EXPECT BOTH COFFEES IN THE WAREHOUSE BY THE END OF FEBRUARY
