Thailand Doi Pangkhon, Ata Farm - Sunny Sunshine Blend

This is two of a trio of coffees that have been blended for a more complex interesting experience. The coffee come from the same harvest, but each used a different process to remove the fruit from the seed (or coffee bean). The farmers of Ata Farm as well as the millers at Beanspire have done a great job growing and processing 3 very high quality and flavorful coffees.

One of coffees of the blend was processed using a ”natural” or dry process. The coffee cherries are dried on raised beds under cover to stay protected from the rain and direct sun. They must be turned regularly and then the fruit is mechanically removed.

The other coffee was was processed using a ”Kenya-style washed" process. One of only a few groups in Thailand to employ this double fermentation washed process: all coffee is hand picked, de-pulped, dry fermented for 12 hours, wet fermented for 18 hours, washed with mountain water, then sun dried on raised bamboo beds.

Along with the attention given to growing and processing the coffee, the mineral-rich soil and next-to-perfect growing conditions result in a surprising complexity and an intensity of flavors. This sparked Ata and Pupae, brother and sister and third generation coffee growers, to actively seek the involvement of specialty buyers. Thanks to the exporter Beanspire, we can now offer several microlots from a specialty origin that deserves more attention worldwide.
