About this coffee:
The coffee is a fully washed lot originating from Rantekarua Estate, Bittuang, situated in the Tana Toraja region of southern Sulawesi. Originally established by a Dutch company named Van Dijk, the estate underwent nationalization after Indonesia gained independence in 1945.
Over the subsequent decades, it became overgrown with forest until Kapal Api acquired the land in 1987 and undertook its rehabilitation. The estate encompasses a total area of 1200 hectares, with 700 hectares dedicated to coffee cultivation. On-site, there is a fully equipped wet mill utilizing Pinhalense equipment, and coffee beans are dried on raised beds under ample covering.
The standard processing procedures involve flotation, pulping, 24-hour fermentation, washing, soaking, and a drying period lasting between 14 to 21 days. In addition to the coffee grown on the estate, cherry and wet parchment are also sourced from external growers.
"Kamala” means lotus as well as pale red in Sanskrit. This is our take on what Indonesian coffees could be under experimental yet directed post-harvest techniques. Kamala offers different arrays of fruity, boozy and out-of-this-world flavours! We achieved this through the use of mostly anaerobic natural techniques as well as trial-based inoculants.
