Here are the new coffee beans that are now available in all % Arabica stores in Jakarta and Bali:
1. Guatemala Chimaltenango Concepción Buena Vista
This coffee comes from one area of the estate called “El Horizonte” in the Central region of Guatemala. The bean is the result of the tireless efforts of brothers Eddy and David Solano, the fourth-generation of coffee farmers hailing from their family, to continue the family tradition of cultivating Red Bourbon coffee trees.
The ripe coffee cherries are rinsed, floated, and dried whole on African beds for approximately 16-21 days, which results in a medium-bodied cup with high acidity and notes of blackcurrant, plum, and caramel.
2. Nicaragua Jinotega Las Delicias
These beans are sourced from the Mierisch family’s farm in the high mountains of Nicaragua’s Matagalpa and Jinotega regions. The Las Delicias is their smallest farm in Jinotega, managed by Eleane Mierisch. Eleane is a fourth-generation family farmer and one of Nicaragua’s leading lights in coffee processing.
Only the ripest cherries of this Javanica lot are selected and dried on African-style raised beds, where they are turned regularly to allow even drying. The result is a vibrant and intense cup full of fruit sugars, with strong notes of blueberry and berry fruits, and a hint of almond in the finish. It is perfect for Chemex or to roast to be enjoyed at home.
