About this coffee:
Bali is where we do a bunch of different things: from small-scale experimental projects all the way to serious scaled-up operations. This particular lot was a mixture of different post harvest processing, blended into one to achieve an interesting cup.
The coffee cherries started in the same tank, inoculated with Klebsiella, Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB), Pichia & S. cerevisiae yeast and then left to ferment in the massive 7,000 litre tank. The tank is sealed with a steel lid to ensure an anaerobic environment.
After the desired ph is reached, the fermentation is stopped and the coffees are split into 3 different drying techniques: 1 goes straight to the drying beds, 1 goes into a demucilager and washing and another 1 goes to the demucilager and goes straight into drying without washing.
Once the parchments are completely dry, they are then sent out for hulling to remove the coffee bean from the parchment and then off to the dry milling process to sort the beans based on weight, size, and color. We then put them all back together inside hermetic sealed bags to homogenise their moisture level and water activity.
“Senja” means sunset in Sanskrit. Just like the different color and stages of the sunset, this taste profile is signified by a combination of deeper and complex vibrancy with an accompanying fruit sweetness and rounded body.
Senja utilises blending techniques as well as bacteria & fungi based inoculants.
Karana is a boutique producer/processor of Indonesian Specialty Coffee, focusing on Bali. They started as a micro-lot processor in developing quality Arabica and Robusta products, from the coffee plantations of Kintamani and Tabanan, but are now operators of these farms as well.
The coffees are processed in Bali’s cultural centre of Ubud, one hour from the Arabica coffee plantations of Kintamani. They train and employ local folks contributing annual projects, centred on community education and the environment.
Karana Global is one of the local thought leaders in coffee fermentation techniques and we are very excited to bounce off ideas with this year’s harvest. Together, we processed all of our CATUR Collection taste profiles as well.
