China - Kaku

Milk Chocolate, Honeycomb, Cranberry

Kaku is a washing station led by Mr Li, which processes coffee grown by local smallholders as well as his own.

Mr Li and his family have been growing and processing commercial grade coffee for over 20 years - the focus on specialty is less than 6 years old. Despite the recent transition, commitment to quality combined
with higher than usual elevation means Kaku is already producing excellent lots. This washed Catimor has a great refreshing acidity, with a nice sweetness tying things up.

Roaster's Notes

The Kaku washing station is located in Paliang, the largest coffee producing area in Menglian Dai, Lahu and Va Autonomous County, Yunnan. 

This lot has been pulped and dry fermented for 12-24 hours before being washed. The drying takes place on patios for roughly 12-16 days.

This is our third year working with Kaku and Indochina, which makes it still a fairly recent relationship for Allpress - if you compare it to the 10 or 15+ years we have with other farms. Despite that, this lot has won our hearts from day one, becoming a staple in our menu and one of the coffees the team looks forward to season after season.
