“Natural. Energizing. Xenial. Uplifting. Sustainable. The world’s first sustainable hyperfood"

Ivica Cvetanovski and Jamison Savage

- Overview

This coffee has won several competitions worldwide and continues to impress every person who comes in contact with its extraordinary aromas and flavours. Key reasons are the coffee cherries.

Processing protocol development by Jamison Savage of Finca Deborah and Coffea Circulor which required meticulous and complex execution by Jamison. Chemistry and biology advisor on cellular level Storm Lunde. Special contribution by Veronika Galova Vesela. Several advanced and new drying techniques were used in the processing of this unique natural coffee cherry lot. A special, enclosed, drying room was constructed to facilitate this effort. It included the use of ultra-violet lights to reduce mold and over-fermention. Humidity and temperatures were carefully monitored. Manually stirring the cherries every 30 minutes and removing any signs of mould on the grains if detected is vital. Fans were lightly used when humidity levels exceeded 60% to guarantee proper drying.

Deborah's Geisha grows slowly on beautiful 7 year old trees and at an extreme altitude. This allows the cherries to develop its unique and complex flavour. Harvest season is February-May and is assisted by BRIX meter. Cherries are scrutinised by colour and defects then laid out on clean, raised, African beds where the cherries dried for 25 days to the reach a moisture content of 10.5-11%. The cherries are then hulled and the cascara is tested for water activity, tasted and vacuum packed for unprocessed preservation of the antioxidants.

Furthermore, the cascara is analysed by an accredited laboratory in Sweden ensuring to certify that no hazardous matter, heavy metals and foreign residue was detected. ORAC/Trolox, phenols and chlorogenic acids were analysed and documented. Coffea Circulor's processing and research resulted in an extremely nutritious fruit. To illustrate the power and potential of this fruit and the method, consuming 1g of coffee cherry equals to consuming 30g of regular occurring blueberries.

Arranged by Jamison Savage.
