This coffee is meant to have a medium body across a range of roasts, and moderate acidity, a fruited lemongrass hint, dried apple slices, natural dried stone fruit flavor, with some rustic sweetness at more roast development. The suggested roasting profile is from City to Full City.
Korgua Estate sits at about 1400 meters above sea level and is planted mostly in older Bourbon and Typica cultivars. It's a wet processed coffee, meaning the coffee cherry and much of the fruit are stripped from the seed using depulping machinery, and then the seed still covered in sticky mucilage is submerged in water tanks where it ferments overnight, breaking down the remaining outer layer of fruit.
Bean 2: Timor Leste Dukurai Daurfusu
This coffee is meant to have A sweet undercurrent, subtle fruited hints of raisin, red apple, and peach skin, with darker roasts pulling out intense bittering, German chocolate cake, and smokey cacao nibs. the suggested roasting profile is City plus to Full City Plus.
The Daurfusu wet mill is located in Dukurai village, Letefoho District. Farmers in this area are growing a mix of cultivars, mostly Timor Hybrid and Typica, at altitudes of 1400 to 1600 meters above sea level.
The arrival of washed Timor Leste coffees comes at a time when we are running low on Central American options, and in terms of flavor, they work quite well as replacement! This coffee will be a lot of fun to roast and I am excited to explore and share the roasting profiles from my roasts!
