About the Coffee
Apinan has been producing and exporting Phu Tub Berk coffee for about 4 years now. Although he started his journey as a processor, he has now developed a new passion for teaching and working with local farmers to improve the quality of their coffee. He believes that farmers can add a real value to their product in the supply chain as opposed to simply selling coffee off to traders at an unfair price. His goals are to equip farmers with knowledge and skills, which in turn, can help create a more sustainable supply chain, as well as to build a reputation for Phu Tub Berk as a new coffee-growing region that is ideal for coffee production.
This particular coffee is processed by local farmers in Phu Tub Berk, and although they haven’t been doing it for very long, we know that there’s so much potential in them and their coffee. That’s why we’re so excited to work with them and this lot is just the start!
The processThe cherries are picked and pulped on the same day before being fermented in a tank with water for 18-24 hours. Then they are washed and dried on a raised bed until the moisture content drops down to 12% - which could take around 10-14 days. Expect a smooth cup with a note of sun-dried prunes and a toffee nut finish.
