This is the first season of our experimental process partnership with Mokha King Coffee. In this season, we took a broad approach, doing various batch trials of anaerobic and aerobic fermentations.
This coffee is from Experiment 1 (Anaerobic) and Experiment 2 (Aerobic), roasted as one batch. Both are natural process.
Our approach with the experimental process partnership was to remove the risk to the producer. In collaboration with Mokha King's team in Yemen, we funded the equipment and expenses, and bought all the cherries that was to be used for the experiments (regardless of the outcome). Coffee that we believe would be a great experience, we open up for sale with the proceeds going back to the fund, in essence as a quality bonus. Coffee that may not pass a quality check, we try use in some way. Collectively, we've learned a tremendous amount and will refine the experiments for Season 2.
