    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.

    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.

    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.

    Owner : Alejo Khale Castro

    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.

    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.

    Today, the production process starts with the planting of the coffee trees on highly fertile volcanic soil above 1400 meters above sea level (SHB) in 3 different regions from Costa Rica.

    Process: Wet Fermentation

    Ixhuatlán del café is the processing centre of the Santuario Project Mexico. It is a fully integrated facility, with wet and dry mills, greenhouses and drying areas, coffee garden, laboratory and a warehouse all dedicated to achieving quality excellence.
    The Ixhuatlán centre works with small producers from Veracruz to produce and isolate only the most exceptional lots, which are then processed under the watchful eye of the expert processing managers of the Santuario project.

    This coffee is wahed and density sorted in floating channels then rested in bags for 24 hours. Once rested its place in fermentation tanks for a further 24 hours of fermentation. Coffee then pre dried on raised beds before being finished in mechanical dryers, with a final humidity of 10-11 percent.

    Cherries are harvested above 24ô brix's. Cherries are soaked in water for 2 hours. Initial cherry anaerobic fermentation for 76 hours. Wet milling process leaving 35 % of Mucilage. Second anaerobic fermentation for 65 hours with Mossto added. Coffee is sun dried on African beds for 22 days until humidity is 10.5 %. Final humidity stabilization for 6 days inside a warehouse, then coffee is finally stored on grain pro bags. After the final stabilization of 8-10 days, coffees are cupped and lots organized.

    Finca Santuario began 22 years ago, when Camilo Merizalde had the desire of creating a very unique farm capable of producing the best specialty coffees in Colombia. Rather than focus on quantity, Camilo decided to focus on quality as a driver of profitability. He quickly realised that biological diversity was paramount in creating an environment capable of producing excellent cup quality with long term sustainability. As such Finca Santuario is set out in such a way as to encourage a vast swathe of plant and animal diversity working symbiotically with the coffee plants. This is particularly important as the vast majority of varieties grown at Santuario are extremely high quality but lower yield, more fragile and more demanding than most varieties widely grown in Colombia. The harmonious interplay between the surrounding environment, volcanic soil and variety allows for the creation of some of the most spectacular coffees available from Colombia.

    Efrain’s farm is located right outside of the village of El Corazón, in Northwest Peru. The farm, which he started in 2005, is filled with mostly Yellow Caturra variety outside of his prize winning Geisha. All his coffee is carefully harvested, processed, and dried right outside his family home.

    In 2005 he bought a plot of land in the upper part of the village, the heart of Chirinos. Efrain began installing half a hectare of coffee of the caturra variety. In 2007 he installed another half hectare more of the same variety and in 2009 installed another hectare more, counting at present with 2 hectares of coffee in production. The plot is named Cerro (Cerro means mountain), because it is located in an area where there are many natural forests. The organization Cenfrocafe has been part of this history since 2007 as it began to provide training and technical assistance and discovered that El ECerro had great potential for specialty coffees. The support of the organization has allowed him to always be in the top positions in internal competitions organized by Cenfrocafe. Efrain is a past COE (Cup of Excellence) winner. In 2017 Efrain's coffee scored a whopping 90.61 COE score!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Hartmann Estate is owned by the Hartmann family. Mr. Alois St. Hartmann (Luis Hartmann) was born in Czechoslovakia in 1891 which he abandoned as a young boy when the First World War began. He originally migrated to Pennsylvania, USA. At the age of 20 Mr. Hartmann travelled Panama and eventually decided to settled down in the province of Chiriqui, specifically in the Candela region where in 1912 he built a house and begin farming coffee!

    Today, the third generation of the Hartmann family represented by Mr. Ratibor Hartmann continues to manage the estate along with 4 of his siblings. Each sibling is in charge of a specific operation on the farm. There is a warm family vibe at the farm and everything seems to work itself out. You can tell that this family have lived together all their lives.

    The estate is fully equiped with a state of the art cupping and sample roasting facility. This has helped to facilitate the incredibly unique and exceptional offerings we have been able to experience from the family run estate over the years.

    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.
