This year’s seasonal offering from Kerehaklu Estate is a monitor inoculated washed processed coffee. This offering makes for a clean cup with its aroma of dried dates and caramel, and long, sweet aftertaste of citrus fruits and berries. Our roasters recommend this as an espresso, cold brew, pour over and AeroPress.
Monitor Inoculated Washed
The team at Kerehaklu experimented with inoculants to process this lot using a Lactobacillus strain. Named after monitor lizards found in abundance at the estate, this process requires coffee cherries to be were sequentially fermented with inoculants which sped up the demuciligination of the beans, giving this coffee a rounded flavour profile of molasses, grapefruit and dried blueberry.
Tasting Notes: Molasses, Grapefruit + Dried Blueberry
Roast Level: Medium
