Etymology

Once in the not so distant past, a nomadic tribe wandered down south. Finally, they settled upon a place attuned to their needs and liking. The place was traversed by a zigzagging creek swollen with clear sparkling water were on its banks grew in abundance wild Malayan trees called “Balangas” (now popularly known as Rambutan). The trees were full of attractive bloody red but juicy and delicious fruits, clustered in their very green foliages. Because of fanatical attachment of this tribe to these balangas trees, they decided to name their settlement “Kabalangasan”.

Costa Rica Aguilera Brothers Micromill
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

The Aguileras are a family of 12 brothers and sisters who are second-generation coffee producers in the West Valley. (Hermanosis used to describe mixed male and female siblings in Spanish, but literally translates to “brothers” in English.) Their father was one of the first coffee growers in the area and planted his farm 70 years ago: Neighboring farmers warned him that coffee wouldn’t grow there, but now the area is rich with coffee lands. His children, the Aguilera Brothers, work together to produce coffee: Most of the siblings own farmland, and they comanage the micro mill they installed with the earnings from their fourth-place Cup of Excellence win in 2007.

At first, their father was skeptical about the mill, but he was pleased by the results: Before they had the mill, the family was selling its coffee to a local cooperative and did not have any connection with the roasters who bought the lots. “No one ever visited before,” says brother Erasmo, the general manager of the micro-mill. “Now we get feedback, and we hear who likes the coffee and how we can make it better.” They have a nursery in which they are growing many different varieties, including Gesha and SL-28, as well as Bourbon and Villa Sarchi. They aim to grow “a balance of good-quality and rust-resistant varieties.”

This lot is a Gesha variety selection that is processed as Washed, using a demucilaging machine to remove all of the mucilage before drying.

By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Ethiopia Danbi Uddo Triple Washed Red Cherry Crown Jewel is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Testi Trading PLC, a coffee mill located in the town of Danbi Uddo near the town of Shakiso within the Guji Zone of the Oromia Region, Ethiopia. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the Testi Trading coffee mill station where the cherries are sorted and pulped. After pulping, the beans are fermented for 36 to 48 hours and then washed. The wet beans in parchment are placed on raised drying beds in thin layers and turned every 2 to 3 hours during the first few days of the drying process. Depending on the weather, the beans are dried for 10 to 12 days until the moisture in the coffee beans is reduced to 11.5 percent.  Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export.
