From flowers to roasted coffee
Flowering takes place at the end of the dry season, very soon after the first big rain. The fragrant smell of flowers is strongly present because everything blooms suddenly, covering the entire plantation with white blossom.
Sorting and exportation
The parchment removal operations and a selective sorting to obtain the best quality of green coffee are subcontracted to the Beneficio "Jardin de aromas". Then the coffee is exported by boat in bags of 46 kg.
Harvesting takes place 7-9 months later. Only the ripe, red cherries are picked, hence the need to pick several times over a period of 2 to 3 months.
It is a micro-factory that allows to depulp, wash to eliminate "honey" that adheres to the grain and dry it (11-12% water) to obtain the "parchment" coffee (of the "parchment" that still surrounds the seed).
The sale takes place via this site (only in Switzerland or in France, other countries to consult us). Our coffees are aromatic with notes of caramel, nuts, chocolate flavor, very light acidity and bitterness.
Our coffees are also available in Puplinge (Petit Caddie), Satigny (Châteauvieux), Lully (Plaine du Loup), Carouge (Comme dans un rêve, Rue Ancienne 31), Orny (Ciboulette) and deliverable at home in geneva by Karibou.ch
