Flores Poco Ranaka

Flores Poco Ranaka


We loved this coffee from Flores so much, we brought it back in a hurry. Flores is a small island - just about 360 kilometers end to end - n the Indonesian archipelago. The name Flores is an abbreviation of "Cabo de Flores"; named by Portuguese sailors because of the underwater gardens on the island.

Poko Ranaka is a small lot of coffee in the village of Tangkul. Altitude of these farms varies, from a low point of around 1400 meters above sea level, on up to about 1800 meters. Coffee is processed at home using hand crank depulpers, fermenting the coffee in buckets, and then either drying on racks or in makeshift drying sheds. This area of Tangkul is near the volcano Ranaka, which is where this small producer blend gets it's name. The area is rife with nutrient rich soils, and coffee farmers are able to grow using fully organic farm practices.

Our roast has some smokey cocoa tones with a bitterness that’s balanced with brown sugar.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
