An amazing coffee sourced through amazing rigours by one of our green bean partners.
Tasiwa Estate is another example of a coffee where putting in extra effort has paid dividends.
We have made a few visits to the owners, and been able to assist them in bringing their processing to a higher standard, improving both quality and shelflife for their coffee.
We were also able to gift them a humidity meter, as a way for them to monitor the drying rates of their coffee. For a roaster to purchase directly from a small estate is very rare.
We developed the relationship and then had to figure out how to get the coffee milled separately.
Being such a small farm, if they were to deliver to the mill and have the beans sorted into the traditional AA/AB/PB the resulting separated screen sizes would have been far too small to export as separate lots.
