[ 3 ] Story 

Milton Monroy

Do you remember the Tabi Natural from BRUT Coffee vol. 8

By far the best Tabi variety we have tried and still one of my favourite coffee from last year.  We are so excited to release his Geisha lot this time. 

A massive thank you to our green bean partner Caravela Coffee. We feel privileged to roast his coffee once again and continue to work with you.

Milton comes from a traditional coffee family, and coffee has always been part of his life. He began to focus on sustainability and quality in coffee in 2012, now he closely work with Caravel Coffee to keep improving the quality.

 

X Grade

A massive thank you to our green bean partner Caravela Coffee. Once again, 

This is a part of Caravela coffee program, when partner producer submit their coffee to the dry mill at Caravela Coffee. They undergo an extensive quality control and they are separated into categories based on the quality such as; RTB (Ready To Blend), A, AA, AAA, and ML (Micro Lot).

When the quality is so exceptional, then they fall into Micro Lot X Grade category. 

I had no idea, when I first tried Tabi Natural from Milton Monroy last year. No surprise it was indeed X Grade and this lot made me so happy. By far the best Tabi variety I have ever tasted and still one of my favourite coffee from last year.

This lot is from the same producer Milton Monroy, but Geisha Variety this time.

So I will let you guess how good it is ; )

Trouble Shooting

If the coffee tastes:
  • Too weak and dry finish ➞ Grind Finer
  • Too strong and sour ➞ Grind coarser
But keep the coffee to water ratio always the same.
