El Cuarenteño – Mexico **
product

 

**This coffee roasts to order on Tuesday of each week**

 

This coffee comes to us from two small producing societies in the community of El Cuarenteño, Nayarit, Mexico. The PROCAA and RIVIERA societies consist of 44 members total. This coffee was mostly shade grown on volcanic soil. After harvest, the members deliver their cherries to the Sandia wet mill where the coffee is de-pulped and dried on patios. From there, the coffee goes the Duende dry mill where it is hulled, sorted, and bagged for export. Only 14 bags were produced from this lot, and SteamDot purchased almost half (6 bags).
This coffee is really well-balanced, with smooth notes of milk chocolate, caramel, and hazelnut. It pairs well with milk and is great with a hearty or spicy meal.

 

Origin: Xalisco, Nayari, Mexico

Varietal: Caturra & Catuai

SteamDot Coffee's Ecuador Hacienda La Gerencia
Hacienda La Gerencia – Ecuador **
product
**This coffee roasts to order on Tuesday of each week**

 

Hacienda La Gerencia is located in the northern province of Carchi, Ecuador and run by Mario Andrade. The farm sits at a range of high elevations from between 1,900 to 2,400
meters and consists of 3 hectares in total. Upon arrival to the wet-mill, the cherries are depulped and fermented for 16 hours and then dried in parabolic dryers for 20-25 days. Mario
is the leader of a small 10-person group called Habitat Coffee that helps farmers in the area. Not only does Mario have a central location where the farmers can come and sell their coffee, but he offers pre-harvest financing for fertilization and even assists with finishing the drying of the coffees for the farmers (who are often so strapped for cash, they can’t wait to finish drying
before needing to sell). Mario is transparent in his business practices so farmers know what the final price was, and what he deducted for his services. This coffee is delicate and elegant on the cupping table, with bright acidity evoking crisp fruit notes, coupled with refined sweetness.

 

Origin: Ecuador

Producer: Mario Andrade

Altitude: 1,900-2,400 masl

Process: Washed

Tasting Notes: Apple, Clementine, and Honey

Red Badger – Sumatra **
product

 

**This coffee roasts to order on Tuesday of each week**

 

The Badger lives on as a SteamDot legend and after a few years hiatus, has made its return! Red Badger is a symbol of the movement started by Red Goni Importers about 7 years ago in supporting orphanages in Sumatra. The humid climate in Indonesia makes it difficult for farmers to dry coffee, and as such, the unique processing method know as wet-hulling is widely practiced. Coffees have the cherry skins removed and are “quickly” dried for a few hours down to a moisture content of about 50%. At this point, the bean is swollen in the parchment. After the coffee is sold, it goes on to the mill to be further dried and “wet hulled” to remove the parchment layer. After this, the coffee is dried to a final 12-13% moisture content and is ready for export. The flavor profile for Red Badger is really unique for a Sumatran coffee, having vibrant acidity and citrus forward notes, followed by lots of sweetness. This is complemented by fine cedar origin notes in the finish, resulting in an overall well-balanced cup.

 

 

Origin: Red Badger, Sumatra

Process: Wet-hulled

Altitude: 1350-1500 masl

Tasting Notes: Orange, Turbinado Sugar, and Cedar

product

 

**This coffee roasts to order on Tuesday of each week**

 

Marcelline Budza established Rebuild Women’s Hope (RWH) in 2013 along the shores of Idjwi, a large remote island in the middle of Lake Kivu in eastern Congo. Inspired by her own mother’s resilience, her vision is “to place women at the center of the integral development of her community” and that “building the hope of women is building the hope of the entire nation.” The cooperative supports its members in several meaningful ways, including interest free loans, incentives for cherry delivery thresholds, and are currently building a health clinic. This coffee comes from the Hala Washing Station of RWH. After cherries are delivered, they are sorted by flotation method, depulped, and then have a wet soak with continuously running water for 8 hours. This is followed by washing, pre-drying, and drying the parchment on raised beds for up to 24 days.

APROCASSI – Peru
product

 

APROCASSI (Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros Solidarios de San Ignacio) was formed nearly twenty years ago in 2000, originally as an effort to protest the mining companies who were flocking to the area to harvest precious metals. Set on protecting their farming land, a small group of farmers banded together and formed the association. Currently, the association has about 600 members. APROCASSI is focused on selling certified coffees, increasing production, and the diversification of products, such as honey, cocoa, and pisciculture. APROCASSI is focused on keeping youth in coffee, as well as women’s income diversification. This coffee has a big, chocolate profile for an overall well-balanced cup. It makes a great pot of drip and is hearty enough to enjoy with (or without!) milk.

 

Producer: APROCASSI

Origin: Cajamarca region of Peru

Tasting Notes: Chocolate, Cherry, and Caramel

The Pacas family have been growing coffee in El Salvador for over 150 years and are true pioneers in the field. They discovered the variety Pacas and it is actually named after them! Finca La Esperanza is 1 of 19 farms owned by the family, and is divided into 18 lots, each with its own microclimate. The Pacamara is a hybrid between Pacas and Maragogype varieties, giving it a unique extra-large bean size. Pacamaras can display a wide range of flavor, typically characterized by some herbaceous notes and a dense body. This is a natural process coffee, and we find subtle yellow fruit notes with a long, sweet finish.

Mchana Estate – Kenya **
product

 

**This coffee roasts to order on Tuesday of each week**

 

Mchana Estate has a rich history dating back to the 1950s. French investors were looking to expand their agricultural portfolio and their agent Jas Nicoll began to acquire coffee estates. These neighboring farms were grouped into one large estate, Mchana, and it became the largest single coffee plantation in Kenya. Fast forward to today, and Mchana estate is 906 hectare with 458 hectare under coffee – almost the same original amount of hectare used to grow coffee as in 1950. Management has changed hands a few times, and today is run by Mr. Wambungo, who is known for his innovation and renovating operations around the farm to increase productivity and quality.

 

This coffee is a showstopper on the cupping table, with bright tropical fruit notes, a lush body, and tons of sweetness.
