About the Product

The processor
Aten is probably the youngest and most enthusiastic coffee farmer we've ever met! We were so impressed by his energy and his support to local farmers by purchasing their coffee cherries at a more sustainable and fairer price. His farm and processing facility are located in Mae Daet Noi village, Kallayaniwattana district, Chiang Mai. In 2013, Aten began processing his coffee and hasn't stopped since. He has been experimenting with fermentation and drying techniques on his own for a while now, so we were thrilled to have the chance to work together and test out new ideas with him!

The process
We're very excited about this coffee because Roots' giveback program was able to help Aten successfully make wash-processed coffee for the second year! Aten has always wanted to try making wash-processed coffee because it would allow him to produce a lot of coffee in one go. However, it was challenging for him because there wasn't enough water to process the coffee in his village. Thanks to everyone's support through the Roots' Cup-to-Farm program, we were able to share back some profit so that Aten could construct an irrigation system for processing his coffee.

He begins the washed process by hand-sorting the coffee cherries and removing the semi-ripe cherries before pulping. He then ages the coffee cherries in a barrel for 48 hours to increase the sweetness and fruity flavor. Afterward, he pulps and ferments the coffee without water in a fermentation tank for 48 hours. The coffee is then washed and soaked in water for 6 hours and transferred to a drying bed for 12-15 days. This classic washed process method results in a clean and sweet cup of coffee."
