Birthday are big news, so for our 8th one we're celebrating with one of the biggest coffees we've ever released.
And, it's a big moment for us too because this lot comes from a co-op we've featured for almost every one of the eight years we've been around – Konga. The chance to feature this carbonic macerated expression of Konga's incredible natural alongside their experimental Supernatural was a no-brainer birthday present to ourselves. We hope you'll enjoy the size of this cup too.
Like previous birthday releases, Jasper, Diamond, and Amber, this Indigo profile has gone through a unique carbonic maceration fermentation, under the guidance of CM pioneers Project Origin.
In this process, red ripe cherries are hand-sorted and placed whole in sealed, temperature-controlled tanks flushed with carbon dioxide. Within this anaerobic environment yeast production and the breakdown of sugars is carefully manipulated to reveal deep fruit notes, huge texture, and a truly memorable cup.
Everything about this coffee is intense—massive boozy fruit cake and musk aroma lead to sweet naartjie and chocolate soft serve, with a gummy mouthfeel, and a lingering chocolate finish.
We're finding incredible results with extra rest on this lot, with best results around 15-21 days off roast, so you can savour this box a little longer.
NB: this is a 250g pack from our Special Release range.
Due to limited availability we have not listed grind options as variants. Please leave a note at Checkout with your preferred brew method if you'd like your coffee ground.
