Tatmara NaturalTreat yourself to the luxury of the finest floral aromas, delicately caressed by tropical fruits and strawberry flavors.Tatmara Natural is a fine example of a naturally processed coffee with complex fruity aromas from fermentation and expressive floral notes. Tatmara is considered one of the most beautiful coffee plantations. Here, the coffee thrives in the middle of a native forest with old trees, spice plants, shrubs and wild animals. The coffees from the 2022/23 harvest are characterized by elegance paired with fruitiness.Negussie Tadesse setzt auf seiner Farm in der Region Dakiti (Kaffa) keine Mineraldünger oder Agrochemikalien ein. Die Unkrautbekämpfung ist Handarbeit. Dennoch sind die Bäume gesund und bringen gute Erträge, was auf die gesunden Waldböden zurückzuführen ist.„Ich persönlich glaube, dass diese Kaffeesorten nicht nur wegen der angebauten Sorten so komplex, geschmacksintensiv und leicht zu extrahieren sind, sondern auch, weil sie langsam unter schattigen Bäumen in sehr gesunden Böden in ihrer ursprünglichen Umgebung wachsen“, so Tim Wendelboe.Negussie pflanzt auf seiner Farm hauptsächlich die Sorten 74110 und 74112, die er bei der Ernte und Verarbeitung seiner Kaffees voneinander trennt. Bei beiden Sorten handelt es sich um Selektionen des Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC). Obwohl sie sehr ähnliche Qualitäten haben, gibt es einige feine Nuancen im Geschmacksprofil. The ripe coffee cherries are picked by hand and dried on raised drying tables. During the first few days, the cherries are constantly moved to ensure that they do not overferment. The workers remove all overripe and slightly underripe cherries by hand during the drying process. During the day, they rake the coffees to ensure even drying and prevent unwanted fermentation. Depending on the climate, the drying process takes 10 to 20 days and is completed when the moisture content of the coffee beans is between 10 and 12%.As soon as the cherries have dried, they are peeled. Then it's off to the mill, where they are cleaned and sorted before being packaged. Expert tip for preparationFilter coffee:Depending on the brewing method, water quality and coffee used, we recommend between 60 and 70 grams of coffee per liter (1000 g)

Drip Roasters Brazil Canta Galo

Dieser reichhaltige und üppige Kaffee zeichnet sich durch eine intensive Süsse aus und bietet eine Fülle von reifen, fruchtigen Nuancen, die an Trauben, Wein, gelegentlich sogar an Rum oder exotische Früchte erinnern. Diese vielfältigen Geschmacksnoten werden von einem herrlich langanhaltenden, blumigen Abgang abgerundet.Canto Galo repräsentiert eine traditionelle Familien-Farm in Campos Altos, im Herzen des Cerrado Mineiro in Minas Gerais, Brasilien. Diese Region zählt zu den höchst gelegenen Kaffeeanbauregionen des Landes und profitiert daher von erstklassigen klimatischen Bedingungen für den Anbau von Kaffee.Die Eigentümer der Farm, Marina do Carmo Santanna de Carvalho und ihr Sohn Heron Reger de Carvalho Junior, bewirtschaften eine Fläche von 48 Hektar, auf der sie verschiedene Kaffeevarietäten anbauen. Obwohl dies im Vergleich zu vielen anderen Kaffeeanbaubetrieben, von denen wir Kaffee beziehen, gross erscheinen mag, ist es in brasilianischem Massstab eher eine kleinere Farm.Der Name "Canta Galo" übersetzt sich als "der Hahn kräht", aber auf den Ländereien der Familie de Carvalho sind nicht nur Hähne und Hühner zu finden. Über 60% des Landes auf Fazenda Canta Galo bleibt unberührt und beherbergt Regenwälder, Wasserfälle und Quellen, die eine bedeutende Rolle bei der langfristigen Erhaltung des örtlichen Ökosystems spielen.Die Familie ist stets bestrebt, die Qualität ihres Kaffees kontinuierlich zu verbessern. Es ist daher nicht überraschend, dass dieser Kaffee bei der 7. jährlichen "Campos Altos and Region Coffee Quality Competition" den vierten Platz in der Kategorie "Pulped Natural" erreicht hat. Dies unterstreicht die Hingabe der Familie de Carvalho an die Qualität ihres Kaffees und ihre Bemühungen, die Kaffeeanbau-Tradition in dieser Region aufrechtzuerhalten.

Demeter coffee versus organic coffee: what's behind it?

Organic coffee and Demeter coffee - two terms that often appear in connection with sustainable coffee enjoyment. But what is the difference? This much can be revealed: Demeter certification includes far stricter guidelines - from compliance with biodynamic production guidelines to a wide range of sustainability aspects.

Why is sustainability so important in coffee production in particular?

Sustainability is the key to ethical, environmentally friendly and future-proof coffee production. But that's not all: sustainable farming methods often lead to higher quality coffee beans with unique flavors, which benefits both producers and consumers. Sustainable practices reduce the use of chemicals, protect soils, preserve biodiversity and protect the climate.

How does organic coffee differ from conventional coffee?

Organic coffee is more than just a drink. It is a statement for environmental awareness, fair trade and pure enjoyment. In contrast to monoculture in conventional cultivation, organic farmers rely on mixed cultivation, which means that coffee plants are allowed to grow together with other plant species. Why is that? This promotes biodiversity and makes the plants more resistant to disease.

Monocultures, on the other hand, harbor serious ecological and economic risks. Focusing on the cultivation of a single plant species over large areas leads to greater susceptibility to diseases and pests and to rapid soil depletion

Coffee plants are very sensitive. Too much heat, but also too much cold, damages them. Moisture is good, but not too much. Coffee farmers like to plant avocado, grapefruit or banana trees, coconut palms or eucalyptus plants next to coffee plants. These mixed cultures ensure that coffee plants are protected from too much sunlight and heavy rainfall.

Organically grown - sustainably enjoyed Conventional coffee cultivation often relies on chemical fertilizers, which provide short-term growth but deplete the soil in the long term. Organic coffee farmers, on the other hand, rely on compost and organic fertilizers. The result? Fertile soils where coffee plants feel right at home.

Fair trade, fair wages Organic coffee stands for fairness not only towards nature, but also towards the coffee farmers. Fair trade practices guarantee fair wages, so that every sip of coffee also bears some social responsibility. Incidentally, unlike conventional coffee, organic farmers harvest their coffee cherries by hand. Industrial harvesting methods are not used.
