Name: Gaia’s helping hand
Varietal: Arabica (Caturra / Catimor)
Altitude: 1080- 1900m
Tasting notes: Chocolate, papaya, citrus
Gaia’s helping hand coffee, is their distinctive signature blend which is a combination of sweet base notes and high acidity, which results in a well-rounded satisfying coffee. It has been roasted as an Omni roast, using a high drop temperature so the subtlety of the acidic notes are not lost and can particularly be enjoyed as a filter. However, there is a depth of flavour and noticeable sweetness when brewed as an espresso which can be enjoyed black or with milk. The coffee plants have been shade grown, meaning the growth slows down and the maturation period of the cherries increases, resulting in increased levels of natural sugars that enhance the flavour of the beans

Varietal: Arabica (Catimor)

The Myanmar Moe Htet Estate coffee is grown on a farm owned by Kyaw Hlaingg of around 200 acres. The farm is run being mindful to the local community, employing many locals as pickers and also organising monthly workshops on the far as a way of contributing to the local coffee community, which should help to bolster a growing speciality industry. The cherries are picked on the farm and transported quickly to the processing facility, fully washed the cherries are then sun dried on patios at the wet mill before being cupped, graded, dehulled and bagged. This is a full-bodied coffee prominent sweetness and a small hint of citrus.
