About the Product
Pana Coffee is a producer that currently has the most state-of-the-art coffee processing facility in Thailand. Recently their efforts have been focused on getting international recognition for Thai coffee beans, which they believe will happen in the near future. Other than coffee production, Pana Coffee also provides education for farmers, processors and various stakeholders in the supply chain by sharing their knowledge and research on coffee.
This coffee is the exciting result of a collaboration between Roots and Pana Coffee using a yeast fermentation method. The uniqueness of this coffee is that we used lactic producing yeast, which hasn’t been commonly used for fermentation before in Thailand. We also experimented by blending coffee beans that had undergone different processing methods (washed, honey and natural process) to see what the result would be. To our surprise, we ended up with a coffee that features a distinct guava flavor, which is very rare for coffee in Thailand. We can’t wait to see what future possibilities using lactic producing yeast has opened for bringing out new flavors in Thai coffee beans!
