Tasting notes:
Complex coffee. Notes of cocoa nibes, cinnamon, tangerine, sugarcane, pinaoole and peanuts. Balanced acidity, round body and long aftertaste.

As time passes, more notes will appear and others will vanish.

These notes were preserved by our team during our cupping sessions using an evaluation roasting profile. Based on what roasting level you’ll be brewing, you can expect to have more notes in the cup.

Because we believe in sustainability, our coffee is carefully packed in a 100% recyclable bag with one-way valve and a ziplock to keep it fresh for as long as possible.
Roasting & Freshness
Our coffee is freshly roasted to order in small batches. Please consider some time to rest the coffee (Degas) before brewing it to enjoy the best experience.
Brewing Tips
This coffee is very dense. We highly recommend to brew it using cooler water than you usually use with other origines and/or grind it finer.

Taha Salam is the master behind these amazing beans. His huge effort, passion, and modern coffee process experience were the main factors to result in such unique lot. Among all the coffee process that we have in the specialty coffee world, he chose the natural-anaerobic process (72 hours) and it worked just great.

Taha was very excited for us to cup his work and was very confident that we will be amazed. He wasn’t wrong as we got 16 great samples out of it with different roasting style. It was very hard to choose the best 3 roasting profiles between them as each cup was very unique and has its own charctristics that make it a perfect cup.

We are very glad to work with such an expert and will keep the great work as a team to experiment more and different process in the future.

The anaerobic natural process is done by fermenting the whole coffee fruit (cherries) in artisanal fermentation tanks after the oxygen is removed when the coffee is added at the beginning of the process. There are valves on the tanks that keep them free from oxygen seeping in during the process while also allowing CO2 to be released as it builds up during fermentation. Time and temperate are two main factors to control in this process that can totally change the final results. With this lot, the cherries were fermented for 72 hours before they were dried under the sun on raised beds for 19 days. As a result, this coffee is very complex, fruity and sweet with balanced acidity and round body.

    Possibly the best coffee I have ever tasted. Bold, smokey, earthy, complex, layered. I shared it with friends who said it spoiled them for all other coffee.
