Limited Edition: Edgar Robinson Conilon

Earth’s climate is changing and the full extent of the damage the human race has done to the planet over the past few centuries is becoming clearer with increasingly frequent extreme weather events, shifting seasons and the damning research reports that make sense of them.

Scenario modelling published in January 2022 indicates that rising temperatures, increased rainfall and subsequent alterations to the PH and texture of soil could lead to the loss of 50% of land highly suited to coffee growing by 2050.

Brazil’s 250,000 producers provide around one-third of the planet’s coffee. As the country’s climate changes, coffee farmers are adapting to secure their livelihoods and continue to meet market demand.

Professor Lucas Louzada and his team at Instituto Federal do Espírito Santo have spent eight years perfecting the process for increasing the quality of Conilon - a genetic group of Canephora coffee.

It is proposed that high-quality, high-yield Conilon can be used to supplement less resilient Arabica varietals threatened by the changing climate - simultaneously introducing tens of thousands of Conilon producers to the specialty market.

Over 12 weeks of harvest season in 2021, Lucas’ team travelled a total of 15,000 km as they shared their findings and recommendations with coffee producers across Espírito Santo. In the first year of the programme, 91% of farms that employed the refined carbonic maceration process achieved cup scores of 84 or more on their Conilon coffees.

The early signs are promising - Conilon could secure the future of the specialty coffee industry.

A significant portion of the profits from this Limited Edition will be returned directly to Instituto Federal do Espírito Santo to support the further development of the programme.

Method 

We recommend using this coffee for any filter brewing method. For pour over, the Orea Brewer is best. We suggest 18g of medium ground coffee for 300ml of water at 98°C. For the batch brew method, use 60g of course ground coffee for 1L water.

Coffees are whole bean as standard. If you'd like your coffee ground, please specify for which brewing style in the notes at checkout and we'll grind fresh.
