    Harries Coffee comes from two coffee Estates farmed by the Harries family since the early 1900s. Located in Kenya’s central province, Chania Estate and Oreti Estate are at an altitude of 5,000ft and 5,200ft respectively, on deep, red, volcanic soils.

    The Estates experience two rainfall seasons producing an annual average of 30-35 inches annually and a mean average daily temperature range of 22-28C.

    The two Estates both border the Chania River and also have water storage in the form of a dam and reservoirs and nearly 200 acres combined of indigenous, planted and riparian forest, to encourage bird-life and wild-life.

    Farmer name: Teman Aba Mecha Kebele
    (Village): Bashasha
    Altitude: 1970 - 2100 MASL
    Woreda (County): Gomma
    Zone: Jimma
    Region: Oromia

    Variety: 74165
    Fermentation times: 12-24 hours
    Average drying times: 15-20 days
    Farm size: 12 hectares

    Jimma is bordered on the south by the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region, the northwest by Illubabor, on the north by Misraq Welega, and on the northeast by Mirab Shewa; part of the boundary with Misraq Shewa is defined by the Gibe River. The highest point in this zone is Mount Maigudo (2,386 m). Towns and cities in Jimma include Agaro, Genet and Saqqa. The town of Jimma was separated from Jimma Zone and is a special zone now.

    Cherry is placed in a fermentation tanks for an average of 12-24 hours. Afterwards the cherry is pulped and placed on raised beds for an av. of 15-20 days. Throughout this time parchment is sundried between 8-11am then covered until 2pm for further drying until 5 pm. During the day workers are constantly moving parchment on the beds for even drying. Thickness of parchment is around 5cm. After the coffee is dried to under 11% moisture the coffee is taken directly to a warehouse and stored in ecotact bags.

    Processing methods: immediately after harvesting, the ripe coffee fruits go through a flotation process to clean debris and remove floaters (low-density fruits). The next day, very early in the morning, the coffee fruit passes through mechanical depulpers, without the presence of water, preserving the maximum amount of mucilage attached to the parchment. The Alarcón family has an automated collective benefit module. They have a de-pulping and sorting machine (UDC-1 Specialty Coffees). The coffee fruit is placed into tanks or bags, fermenting there from 12 to 24 hours; it varies according to the environment temperature. Then, the seeds are washed and dried until the moisture content reaches 9%–11%.
    Drying methods: few farmers in this place dry the coffee placing polypropylene tents on the ground, under a shade, and covering it at night. But the majority of them use beds, solar dryers, or dry the seeds on tables.
    Drying time: the coffee is dried from 15 to 20 days, at least 8 hours per day.

    Process: Double Fermentation

    Many years ago, Luiz Saldanha was on a coffee trip in Nicaragua when he met a producer who had just placed second in the Cup of Excellence. Cupping the coffee, he was amazed at the intensity of flavour and cleanliness of the cup. When Luiz quizzed the producer about the processing, it turned out that he had taken his cherries to the mill for pulping, but when he got there he found out there was no power. He decided to leave the cherries overnight in the fermentation tanks fully submerged in cold water, then pulped the cherries in the morning when the power came back on.

    This inspired Luiz to start experimenting with a similar technique on his farm. After many trials and tweaks, the 'double fermentation' process was born. In this process, only the ripest cherries are taken to the wet mill where they are left to soak overnight in 8 degree spring water. The cold water slows the initial fermentation process, and allows Luiz to manipulate the metabolic processes the coffee undergoes to create the desired acids and esters. After 12-18 hours of soaking, the cherries are pulped, washed and very slowly dried on raised beds under UV covers, ensuring uniform drying throughout the bean mass and the beans themselves. The result is an incredible stable and consistent product with notes of intense red fruits, grape and a viscous creamy body.

    Fazenda California, owned by Saldanha family, is located in the Brazilian subtropical region of the so-called Norte Pioneiro do Parana. This region is characterized by being the area adjacent to southern Brazil able to develop coffee plantation without the low temperatures of the winter period which hinder production. The coexistence of volcanic soils of high fertility, good distribution of rainfall throughout the year and the binomial established between its average elevation of 750 meters and latitude 23ºS result in a micro climate with average annual temperature of 20ºC, four well defined seasons and a wide temperature range. This in turn creates the ideal environment for the development of the highest quality arabica coffee lots.

    Hacienda Sonora Estate has been in Alberto’s family for more than a Century. In the 1970’s, when Alberto took over the farm, he began planting the majority of the land with coffee, and shortly after, it became the main source of income. In 1999, with historical low coffee prices, Alberto invested in a Mill with the purpose of maximizing it’s quality; in order to do so, he became a pioneer in very alternative processing techniques at the time such as Honey and Naturals. He also became a living proof of how different varieties of coffee could create distinct level of complexity in the cup. Nowadays, Sonora has more than 20 different varieties of coffee in 77 hectares of coffee (+ 20 hectares of forest reserve) and is known to be a welcoming place for coffee lovers.

    Enrique Robles Mora started in the coffee tradition over forty years ago, in the late 1970´s. His son Carlos Enrique Robles Barrantes continued the legacy, managing family farm Finca El Cerro for around 25 year until the new generation of Robles took the reins.

    Carlos Enrique has 3 sons. Elian Robles is in charge of the farm - taking care of the production part of the coffee, he decides which varieties to grow, fertilization and any agronomical practice that needs to be done at the farm. He is assisted by his brother by Leonardo who helps both on the farm and in the mill. The last brother Melvin is in charge of processing and drying coffees in the mill. He takes care of the production of all the microlots of the farm. RyS typically processes 80% of the lots as naturals, 10% double washed and 10% honey.

    The specialty lots through RyS started thanks to the work of the SMS farm support team of our sister company Cafinter. They visited Don Elian 3 years ago offering new hybrid varieties. After tasting the incredible coffees being produced at El Cerro and processed through RyS, the SMS Specialty team started to promote the coffee with their international buyers and year after year the relationship has grown, allowing Elian to improve production, quality and access to market.

    The facility is located in Kercho Anderacha village of Gera county, one of the highland coffee growing areas in Ethiopia. For the sake of marketing and grading purposes, Gera is categorized under Limu coffee. However, as compared to other localities in the Jimma zone, Gera is exceptionally characterized by unique coffee varieties, semi forest coffee production system and high altitude farms.

    This coffee lot is a blend of coffee berry disease (CBD) resistant coffee varieties selected in 1974 and 1975. Dominantly it is a coffee variety called 75227 which is CBD resistant, high yielding and high quality coffee variety selected in 1975. The 2020/21 crop season is their second season to produce different coffee types at their Telila coffee washing station. While the largest percentage of their production is fully washed coffee, natural coffee and processing lots via honey, anaerobic and carbonic fermentation are also produced as micro lots. Telila coffee processing station sources red coffee cherries from three different villages around the washing station. These are Yukro, Kercho Anderacha, and Genji Challa villages.

    Red coffee cherries from each village are processed separately to create community separated lots. The same fully washed coffee processing technique is applied for each lot. Well ripe coffee cherries are pulped within 12 hours from time of picking. Immediately after pulping, the parchment coffee is soaked in clean water for 12 hours. Then, the parchment coffee is washed and water is changed to prevent over fermentation. Finally, the coffee is soaked for another 12 hours for the final stage of fermentation. In total, after 24 hours the coffee is fully washed with clean water and graded for the final stage of skin drying under shade followed by drying under sun on raised african coffee drying beds.

    Hand-picked coffee cherries are taken directly from farm to coffee processing sites for sorting out under ripe, overripe and insect/pest damaged cherries. Only well ripen red cherries remain for pulping using a locally made washed coffee processing machine called Agard. Immediately after pulping, coffee is soaked under water for 48 hours to undergo wet fermentation. During this period, water is changed every 24 hours. This round of fermentation is completed after confirming that the mucilage is completely removed through washing the parchment coffee using clean water. Lastly, clean parchment coffee is transferred to a soaking tank and stays there under water briefly (2-4 hours). The coffee is then transferred to a skin drying stage where stirring the parchment coffee around is carried out by hand under shade. This process usually lasts from 2-4 hours in the morning.

    Skin drying is immediately followed by the final main drying stage. In this final phase, parchment coffee is transferred on to a raised drying bed where it stays for 10 days till the bean moisture level reaches 10.0-10.5%. In the meantime, to maintain uniform drying among beans, the parchment coffee is set under the sun for two hours in the morning between 8:00 and 10:00 AM. To prevent the coffee from the hottest hours of the day, the parchment coffee is covered with nylon mesh and plastic between 11:00AM and 3:00 PM. In the afternoon, the parchment coffee is uncovered for another two hours between 3:00 PM-5:00 PM. This is a routine practice carried out throughout the main parchment coffee drying period.

    The two Estates both border the Chania River and also have water storage in the form of a dam and reservoirs and nearly 200 acres combined of indigenous, planted and riparian forest, to encourage bird-life and wild-life.

    The main variety of Arabica coffee planted on Chania Estate was one of the original varieties reintroduced to East Africa called French Mission. We have a total of 180 acres of coffee on Chania of which 95 are French Mission. The remainder consists of Ruiru 11 (CBD resistant), K7 (Rust resistant), SL28 (susceptible to disease but recognised for cup quality), SL 34 and the new variety Batian.

    Debes of freshly picked coffee are placed at the hopper and are flushed into the pulper.

    The pulper discs take off the outer skin and the cherry is carried by water to soak in tanks. We do our own processing on the farms with the majority of our coffee beans going through ‘wet processing’. From the farms the dry, ‘parchment coffee’ is transported to a coffee mill for hulling, polishing, grading and bagging.

    We have three lots from Chania Estate this year, all of the French Mission Bourbon variety but with three different post harvest fermentation. Wet, Pulped and Dry fermentation.

    At the beginning of the 19th century, when coffee production was in its early beginnings in America, without knowing it, two pioneers and entrepreneurs, Alejo C. Jiménez in Costa Rica and Wilhelm Kahle in the south of Mexico, shared the same dream: “To produce the best coffee in the world” to satisfy the new demanding European gourmet market.

    Today, descendants of these visionary farmers still produce coffee within the same ideals of excellency and top quality that inspired their ancestors that continue with the tradition in Costa Rica.

    Nowadays, the descendants of Don Alejo C. and Don Wilhelm want to further enhance the principles of quality inherited by our founders by adding the value of conservancy of natural resources, through the acquisition of extensions of natural rainforest for its protection and conservation. These facts, not just words, are small actions taken by one family to reduce air contamination and global warming. This is the contribution we want to make to mankind, this is the new awareness we want our future generations to inherit.

    This lot comes from a limited selection of exclusive micro and nano batches with unique exotic qualities that come from our menu of varieties such as Caturra, Geisha, Kenya SL-28, Villasarchi, Sarchimor, Mocca, among others. These come in different process presentations like washed, honey or natural.

    Our coffees are roasted for either filter or espresso, suited to particular brew methods. Generally if you add milk to your coffee please select espresso roast.

    Variety - Catuai & Typica

    In the state of Chiapas you find Mexico ́s largest and oldest coffee producing regions, some farms can look back on a history record of more than a hundred years. With the influence of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other side, the mountain slopes of the Sierra Madre Chiapas crosses the region dividing the state and creating various special microclimates.
    This coffee is decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process which involves sourcing natural mountain water from Pico De Orizaba (one of the largest mountains in Mexico). The coffee is soaked and washed in clean water numerous times and then the water is passed through a caffeine filter before being re-introduced to the coffee. This natural process leaves a full flavoured coffee without any chemical residue.

Plunger

Plunger

Notes

French press, or plunger, is consistent and really easy. It can brew a richer, fuller cup than pour over and is preferred by a lot of people for its flavour and ease of use.

You can vary the amount of brewed coffee you need by changing the amount of beans you grind. We aim for 60-70g per litre of water. So, for one and a bit cups, you’ll need 20 grams and 300ml of water off the boil.

Drop your freshly ground coffee (coarse like salt and preferably from a burr grinder) into your plunger pot.

Add your boiled water vigorously (or stir quickly) to wet all the grounds. Let it brew for four minutes.

Using a spoon, gently collect the ground coffee that is floating on the top, and discard it. Plunge it down carefully. If you can’t push your plunger down with two fingers, then please stop (they have been known to break under pressure and burn people).

Pointers

  • If you can’t push the plunger down with two fingers then you have ground your coffee too fine, and it may not taste as desired.
  • If you like your coffee stronger, try using more ground coffee, i.e. 80g or 100g per litre. A stronger brew like this can mask the more floral and delicate notes of some coffees, so apply this rule with caution!
  • If the coffee tastes watery or weak, try brewing it for longer than 4 minutes OR try grinding it more finely.
  • If the coffee tastes astringent or dry, try grinding it more coarsely, or brewing for a shorter time.

Pour over

Pour over

Notes

Filter coffee is one of the gentlest ways to brew coffee. It is a method of brewing that we like the most for its clarity, flavour and accuracy.

For one cup of filter coffee, you need: a filter cone, filter paper, 15 grams of single origin coffee and a kettle of water. We’re using 60-70 grams of coffee per litre of water, so we’ll make a cup that is around 240ml of coffee.

The water will need to be just off the boil (around 92-96 C), so leave it to stand cooling for a couple of minutes after it’s boiled. While you’re waiting, rinse the paper filter with the boiling water to get rid of paper taint and warm your cup.

Your grind should be coarser than espresso but finer than french press – a medium grind ( with a quality burr grinder ). Over time, play around with the grind and find the sweet spot that appeals to your taste, but a grind that fills your cup in about two and a half minutes is a good place to be.

Place ground beans straight into the filter paper. Then, pour a small amount of water over the coffee to wet all the grounds ( bloom )

Leave it to soak through for about 40 seconds. This will allow the water to soak the grounds all the way to the bottom of the filter, setting you up for an even extraction.

Pour slowly in a circular motion to cover all the grounds, just so you raise the coffee bed a centimetre or two. Continue pouring slowly and consistently, maintaining the height of the coffee bed until you’ve added the 240ml of water. There shouldn’t be too much water left in the coffee once it has finished dripping.

Discard or compost your paper filter and use a new one every time.

Pointers

  • If you prefer a stronger cup, use a higher dose (80-90 grams per litre), but please adjust your grind to suit this – it may need to be finer.
  • If it tastes watery or too weak and filters through too quickly, try fining up your grind.
  • As the coffee ages (typically noticeable two weeks after Roast Date), the water will take longer to filter through, and you should coarsen your grind to adjust for this.
  • If your cup tastes too bitter or astringent, try coarsening your grind.
  • If your cup tastes sour or grassy, it may be that your dose is too high. Try using less coffee per cup to get a sweeter beverage.

Aeropress

Aeropress

Notes

With a dose slightly higher than pour over or French press, you will need 15 grams to 200ml of water.

The brewing water should be not long off the boil (about 95-97 degrees), so boil the water and let stand.

Grind the beans at a coarseness equivalent to drip filter (roughly halfway between espresso and French press).

Invert the Aeropress so the filter is upside down at the top and the rubber plunger is set at mark 4 on the main brewing chamber (this will hold 200ml of water). Remove the filter holder, insert a paper filter and rinse both the paper and the brewing chamber with boiled water.

Place the ground coffee directly on the rubber plunger and add water vigorously until the chamber is almost full. The bloom from the fresh coffee should have about half a centimetre clearance from the top of the chamber.

Twist on the filter holder (with rinsed filter paper) and let stand for 1 minute, then stir gently and leave for another minute.

Carefully turn the Aeropress right way up over a preheated mug. Press down on the plunger until the brew chamber is almost empty, stopping just before you hear the hiss from the half centimetre air pocket.

Pointers

  • For a stronger brew, increase the steep time up to a minute and a half, or stir the brew before plunging.
  • If you can’t plunge without straining a muscle, try coarsening your grind or decreasing the dose.
  • To clean the Aeropress, simply pull apart and rinse in hot water. Grounds and the paper filter can be composted.

MoccaMaster / Automatic Drip Filter

MoccaMaster / Automatic Drip Filter

Notes

This method automates the pour over for a great tasting filter coffee. You will need some single origin filter roasted coffee, ground coarsely (like sea salt)

Preheat the MoccaMaster – Add some filtered water (150ml) to the water reservoir. Place a new clean filter in the coffee cone, switch the Mocca Master on and place the carafe under the cone. Allow the water to run through the the dripper, paper filter and into the carafe. Empty the carafe. This cleans the paper filter getting rid of any paper taste and also pre heats your carafe. It is now ready for use.

For 4 cups

35g of coarsely ground coffee – 500g of filtered water
Set water flow control to off “X”
At 45 seconds, stir the wet grounds making sure they are evenly covered. Now open flow control to half open.
All finished, brew time should be about 3:30

For 8 cups

70g of coarsely ground coffee – 1L of filtered water
Set water flow control to off “X”
At 45 seconds, stir the wet grounds making sure they are evenly covered. Now open flow control to full open.
All finished, brew time should be about 6:00

Pointers

  • We recommend anywhere between 65-75g/L for your brew ratio.  
    Feel free to play with this ratio to suit your taste.
  • You can dial in your grind size to taste – too weak?  Go finer.  Too strong?  Go coarser.

Syphon

Syphon

Notes

A syphon gives you clarity of flavour with added body. It’s a beautiful method to observe and produces one of the best cups of coffee.

We prefer a butane burner for better heat control and overall efficiency. You will also need a wooden paddle, a timer and 23.5g of freshly ground, filter roasted coffee (medium/coarse the consistency of sand).

Fill the bottom chamber with 250ml of filtered water and bring up to boil on full heat. When boiling fit the top chamber on, tightening the rubber seal.

As the water rises up to the top chamber ensure your cloth filter is central with no air bubbles passing up the side.

When the water level reaches half way you can drop your 23.5g of coffee in stirring thoroughly making sure all grounds are wet.

When all the water is in the top chamber back off the heat just enough to maintain all the water in the top WITHOUT it boiling. Start your timer.

Three distinct layers will now be visible ensuring your on track to perfect extraction.

At 30 seconds using the paddle gently fold the crust back in on itself as evenly as you can. As soon as this is done (or at 40 seconds) start a whirlpool by slowly stirring in a clockwise direction no more than 5 times, at the same time you must turn off the heat.

Your brew will now make its way back down to the bottom chamber leaving a perfect dome of grounds over the cloth filter.

Disconnect the top chamber, pour and enjoy !

Pointers

  • We are aiming for a ratio of 9g/100ml. It is a high dose but contact time is quick.
  • Timing is everything, too slow and it will taste astringent, too fast and it will taste watery.
  • Make sure you don’t boil the coffee in the top chamber at any stage this will ruin your brew.
  • Pull the heat away as soon as you start stirring your whirlpool as there is always a few second delay before the coffee travels back down to the bottom.
