Muhlisin Agropuro

Muhlisin Agropuro

Situated along the slopes of the Argopuro Volcano is a region in East Java known for its coffee production thanks to the rich volcanic soil and high elevations. The iconic volcano creates the beautiful Javanese landscape in the Situbondo Regency. When coffee was first cultivated in Indonesia, it was common for Dutch colonists to plant low-quality Robusta in large estates. However, the 21st century ignited a shift towards Arabica, especially in East Java, whereby more micro-lots appeared, owned by producers experimenting with new, innovative processing methods.

This lot is one such example of this coffee-quality revolution in Indonesia. Producer and cooperative leader Pak Muhlisin founded the Pokmas Walida Cooperative in 2014 to gather producers in the area and spread awareness about new processing methods to improve quality.

During the harvest, each producer will carefully handpick the cherries and transport them to the collection station adjacent to the Pokmas Walida wet mill. Here, the cherries are submerged in water to remove any floaters to maintain quality. Once sorted, the coffee is placed into large water tanks and covered for 72 hours to initiate fermentation and breaks down the exterior mucilage helping to create a unique-tasting profile. When fermentation is complete, the cherries are evenly dispersed on covered raised beds to dry for 15 days and moved to tarped patios to dry for another ten days. Then, cherries are moved regularly to prevent mold growth. The coffee is ready for hulling once it reaches the ideal water content level. The dried cherries are moved via truck to the dry mill, 50 miles away, to be hulled and set to rest before export.

Panama Chiriqui Santa Clara
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Panama is an origin that constantly makes headlines in the specialty coffee world, primarily associated with the renowned Gesha variety. But several complexities influence specialty coffee, and it would be a mistake to reduce the complexity of this famous growing region to nothing more than plant variety.

With this lot of Caturra and Catuai from Finca Santa Teresa, there is an opportunity to explore the impact of terroir and different processing techniques on other varieties. Santa Teresa has 240 acres cultivated with coffee, meticulously divided into 20 plots with distinct landscapes and micro-climates, which influence a coffee seed’s maturation and ultimate quality in different ways.

In addition to a mindful and environmentally balanced approach to farm management, Santa Teresa has an experienced team and onsite infrastructure at the farm to ensure attention to detail during the harvest. This Caturra and Catuai lot is honey processed where ripe cherries are floated to remove less dense and damaged seeds, then de-pulped, placed on raised beds, and regularly turned over 8 to 12 days.

How to stay hydrated in the summer heat
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

As the temperatures soar this summer, many people turn to cold drinks like iced tea, lemonade, and iced coffee to stay hydrated. However, did you know drinking hot coffee can also help you stay hydrated in the summer? Here are some tips on how to stay hydrated this summer with coffee.

  1. Drink coffee in moderation.

    While coffee can help you stay hydrated, drinking it in moderation is essential. Too much caffeine can lead to dehydration and other health issues. If you’re drinking coffee, be sure also to drink plenty of water to stay properly hydrated. According to the National Academy of Medicine, adults should aim to drink between 8-12 cups of water per day, depending on their body weight, activity level, and climate.

  2. Choose the correct type of coffee.

    Choosing the right type is essential if you’re trying to stay hydrated with coffee. Avoid sugary coffee drinks like frappuccinos and sweetened lattes, as they can dehydrate you. Instead, opt for black coffee, which is low in calories and won’t dehydrate you.

  3. Brew coffee with cold water.

    Brewing coffee with cold water is one way to make it more hydrating. Mix coarsely ground coffee with cold water and let it steep for 12-24 hours in the fridge. Then strain the mixture and enjoy. Cold-brewed coffee is less acidic than hot-brewed coffee, which makes it easier on your stomach and can help you stay hydrated.

  4. Add ice cubes.

    If you prefer hot coffee, add ice cubes to your cup to stay hydrated. It can help cool down the coffee and make it more refreshing. You can also add flavor to your coffee by using flavored ice cubes, such as fruit juice or mint leaves.

  5. Try iced coffee.

    Iced coffee is a great way to stay hydrated in the summer months. Brew your coffee as usual, let it cool down, and pour it over ice. Add milk or cream to your iced coffee for a richer flavor.

In conclusion, while it may seem counterintuitive, coffee can help you stay hydrated during the hot summer. Just be sure to drink it in moderation, choose the right type, and drink plenty of water alongside it. Happy hydrating!

Bolivia Irupana Fausto Machaca
By Everyday Coffee Roasters

Coffee has been in Bolivia for hundreds of years, but now a new generation of coffee farmers dedicated to producing high-quality coffee is taking the stage in Bolivia. For the first time in the country’s history, green coffee production has funding and support from the federal government, fueling the search for knowledge among dedicated young coffee professionals. The epicenter in the rise of Bolivian specialty coffee is in the Los Yungas region. Most farms came after a wave of migration to the area caused by Bolivia’s Agrarian Revolution in the 1950s.

And nearly a century later, this lot emerged from a single small farm belonging to Fausto Machaca and his family, a 4-acre farm near Caranaví in the Irupana municipality. Fausto and his family have been growing coffee in the Yungas region of Bolivia for over 50 years. Fausto carefully harvests the cherry, de-pulps, ferments, washes, and dries the coffee on patios and raised beds.

Since Bolivia is a landlocked coffee-producing country, farmers need help getting their coffee to the international market. Felix Chambi Garcia, through his leadership role at the San Juan cooperative, has become an important figure, helping producers with the logistics of moving coffee to the dry mill, where quality and traceability inspection during the preparation for export.
