The Edelweiss estate has been in the hands of the Vohora family since 1969. Perched on the edge of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the farm borders the entirely indigenous Ngorongoro forest.
Volcanic soil, extreme variations in topography and multiple micro-climates ensure coffees from the estate present remarkably complex flavour profiles.
The origin of this coffee is particularly interesting. In 2007, five Heirloom beans were imported into Tanzania from Ethiopia. They were planted, propagated and over the following 10 years the plantings were expanded to cover 40 acres of the estate and are now producing exceptional lots.
Once harvested as ripe cherries, this lot underwent a four day pre-fermentation process. It was then dried in cherry and the result is a cup full of rich fruit flavours, sweet spice notes and a weighty texture. A delicious brew.
The Edelweiss coffee comes with an exclusive taste card printed on fabric.
We recommend brewing this coffee with a pour over coffee brewer. Use filtered water at 98 degrees Celsius, and the Assembly pour over method.
You will find that you unlock the full flavour potential of this coffee once it's been rested for at least 10 days.
