Morettino will present a preview of the three new Specialty Coffee and a new exclusive Specialty Blend. The new coffees are by the Coffee Lab, the micro roaster project that suggests a small cultural revolution in coffee consumption, more conscious and respectful of the raw material.
Two Arabica single origins and a Fine Robusta, a real treat for Specialty coffee lovers, and a Specialty Blend #87, result of the skilful mixing of two Arabica Specialty and a Fine Robusta. They are ethical coffees, which aim to enhance the work of small producers in the countries of origin of coffee and consequently of the raw material.
The Rwanda Twongerekawa Coko Women Coffee (Sca Score 86,25) is the result of a project created to promote the role of women in the eastern African country. The co-op that produces this 100% Arabica is led by a woman president and formed by 134 producers, 96 of which are women. The female cultivators receive an education on the best agricultural practices and on the coffee processing techniques, with the goal of creating a return in terms of development, which also translates into the improvement of the living conditions of the territory where the women live. It’s a Specialty Coffee with an aroma of dry fruit and coconut, a balanced flavor with notes of pineapple and candied fruit.
The other Specialty Coffee is Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere (Sca Score 85), an Arabica single origin with a complex acidity, fruity and floral notes, pleasantly sweet with notes that recall citrus and black tea with a persistent spicy aftertaste. It comes from Kochere, a small village in southern Ethiopia, where the climate conditions are ideal for cultivating high-quality coffees. About 750 families of small producers cultivate coffee without fertilizers, the coffee is handpicked selecting only the best ripe drupes and is processed with a natural method.
Finally, a unique coffee: the . It’s a refined Robusta single origin that comes from a small co-op located in the north-west of the country, in the vicinity of the city of El Diamante de las Segovias. The Fine Robusta represents an excellency in the world of Coffea Canephora and is part of a movement that promotes this variety.
In the world of coffee we have seen for a long time an extremity between Arabica, considered all indistinctly of superior quality, and Robusta, relegated to the role of low quality coffee. Of course, as there are some bad Arabica origins, there are Robusta valuable, it is always the sensitivity of the roaster to select the best origins to create coffee excellence.
With the launch of the Nicaragua Fine Robusta Morettino wants to realize the use of the Robusta of superior quality, proposing it in single origin as Arabica coffee, just to create awareness among consumers and coffee makers.
In this sense, the work done with the creation of Specialty Blend #87 (Cup Score 83), a special blend resulting from the union of three single precious origins: Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere Specialty 100% Arabica, Brazil Wild Specialty 100% Arabica and Nicaragua Finca Jorge Lagos Fine Robusta.
A sweet blend, with the aroma of rose and caramelized lemon, taste of macadamia nuts, goji berries and toasted bread, with a pleasant chocolate bean aftertaste.
