Bask in the lush heritage of Tanzania with our Kilimanjaro Single Origin. Hailing from the fertile slopes of the highest free-standing mountain in the world, this is a coffee cultivated with decades of passion and care, the unique microclimate of ideal altitudes, stable temperatures, and mineral-rich volanic soils bringing forth this coffee's exotic characteristics.
Every cup offers a journey through its layered notes of carrot cake, star fruit, and nectarine, leading to an aroma and taste that are both pleasantly intense and harmoniously balanced. The shade-grown coffee (or shadow coffee) cultivation method allows coffee cherries to ripen slowly, fostering a richer development of sugars. The result is a coffee that is full-bodied, aromatic, and a true representation of Tanzanian coffee heritage.
Carrot Cake - Star Fruit - Nectarine
Varietals: Bourbon, Kent, Typica, and Blue Mountain
Altitude: 1050-1400 MASL
Filter: Pour Over (V60)
- Preheat water (300 ml) to 92° Celsius.
- Place the paper filter on the V60 and, with the coffee dripper placed on your chosen cup or vessel, rinse it using about 50 ml of your pre-heated water. Let the hot water drip into your vessel to help preheat and rinse. Discard the water.
- Grind the coffee at a medium-coarse grind and pour it into the paper filter, shaking it gently to ensure coffee is evenly distributed inside the V60.
- Place your coffee dripper and vessel on top of your scale and tare it.
- Begin the timer and start pouring hot water using a circular motion making sure all the ground coffee is soaked. Use 50 ml of water for this first pour and let the coffee bloom.
- At 0:30 min start the second pour. This time use 100 ml of water and let it brew. Once all water has fallen through, do a final pour using the remaining 100 ml of water.
- Stop the timer once all brewed coffee has finished pouring from your dripper. At the end you should have added 250 ml of water and the total brewing time should have been between 2:15-2:45 minutes.
Adjust your grind size to change your brewing time:
- If your extraction time is too short, try a new brew after adjusting the grinder to a finer setting.
- If your extraction time is too long, try using a coarser grind size.
