1) Colombia Julian Gonzalez Munoz Pacamara Anaerobic Natural
Being coffee roaster is more than just buying, roasting and selling coffee. At Arkib, we immersed ourselves with new experience and curiosity. This lead us to a coffee varietal named Pacamara. Such an underrated coffee varietal but hold unawakened potential. The story begin back in circa 2017 when our head coffee roaster was competing for national brewers cup competition. Try to avoid mainstream coffee such Geisha or Wush Wush, he was looking for a coffee that can posses overall outstanding coffee quality. The answer was Pacamara. The lab made cross hybrid maragogype and pacas give a birth to a juicy acidity, complex floral and berries flavours, solid and herbal body make it a candidate that can go toe to toe with other superior varietal like Geisha.
Beside Pink Bourbon, Pacamara has been a staple offering at Arkib. We considered it among the hardest coffee to roast due to big and oval size which cause easy tipping problems. For August selection, we secured Pacamara Anaerobic Natural produced by Julian Gonzalez Munoz in Acevedo. His company Cuatro Vientos is an exporter company that select and buy top lot selection to international coffee buyer. After few years he decided to start his own farm, and we are lucky to share his experimental coffee with our subscriber.
This coffee is one of the most exciting that we ever tried. From our experience, natural Pacamara tend to give a tropical fruits coffee quality. Heavy berries sweetness and slightly winey finishing. The anaerobic tune the flavour's spectrum into delicate tropical sweetness with prominent flavours such as blueberry, mango, honey and chocolate. The acidity is complex and goes well with round body quality. The anaerobic process is fermentation environment without oxygen. These type of environment help to 'kill' certain microbes, and we taste better result on Julian Pacamara. The winey quality has turn to more constructed flavours such as olive, pickle and fig. Julian Anaerobic Pacamara coffee is packed with wild flavours, and we believe with minor brewing adjustment it will bring you different coffe e flavours dimension.
Cupping Notes: Blueberry, Mango, Honey, Olive, Fig, Chocolate
2) Toraja Dewi Carbonic Maceration Fully Washed
Legend said hard work paid off and dream come true. We truly feel it when this beautiful coffee touch down at Arkib roastery. It is 4 years of coffee quest since the day we taste Toraja Pulu-Pulu coffee. Toraja coffee is one of the famous Indonesian coffee on international coffee market. Heavy body and clean acidity make Toraja coffee a crowd favourite for espresso offering. Back then in 2018, we had a chance to roast and brew Toraja Pulu-Pulu Wet-Hulled. We are still new to Indonesia coffee scene and learnt Pulu-Pulu coffee come from Pulu-Pulu village which located at 2000msal. We are blown away by Toraja Pulu-Pulu coffee quality. It comes to one point that we are not sure if we are having Ethiopian coffee or Indonesia coffee on cupping table. How Indonesia coffee has prominent and complex floral quality? It tastes so delicious just like a fully washed Ethiopian coffee. The different that it is slightly herbal aftertaste due to wet-hulled process.
Since then, we are aiming to source natural or fully washed coffee. One thing that we learnt from Arkib Dagang Terus (direct trade) program, it is nearly impossible to process coffee at high elevation like Pulu-Pulu due to lacking sunlight and low environment temperature. We are blessed when finally we met our current partner Pak Toby Moshe. He is a young entrepreneur aiming to specialize in speciality coffee. His work paid off when producing remarkable Toraja coffee which has excellent export quality.
This coffee is the last batch of carbonic maceration coffee processed by Pak Toby for 2020/2021 harvest. Since it is microlot he only produced for high profile client. Push-pull location is biting isolated from the nearest village or town. It only can be access by 4 wheels drive or motorcycle. Furthermore, there is no electricity in this village and all of them rely on generator to generate electricity. Pak Toby has used special build stainless steel tank equipped with thermal log and PH reading for monitoring. This coffee has gone under fully washed carbonic maceration produced such amazing fruity and floral coffee. It tastes so juicy and bright like grapefruit. The cranberry flavours become prominent as it cools down. It is clean cup and high flavours clarity, We are having hard time to believe it is Indonesian coffee. We learnt great coffee need incredible coffee producer. Kudos Pak Toby!
Flavors: Juicy, Grapefruit, Cranberry, Sugarcane, Persimmon
