Now even the smallest roaster or home coffee enthusiast can work directly with Aida Batlle to access her high - grade raw coffee beans. Perfectly sized for those curious to try their hand roasting her exclusive coffee, the Home Roaster Selection gives access to some of her finest green coffee.

Aida is offering vacuumed packed bags of green Finca Kilimanjaro from her families renowned farm. Finca Kilimanjaro and Aida Batlle are both names that reverberate quality. They made their appearance in Speciality Coffee in 2003, when in her first year as coffee producer, Aida became the first woman to ever secure the converted winning title of “Cup of Excellence”. Finca Kilimanjaro is home to some of the finest coffee varieties in the world. High quality Kenyan varieties SL - 28 and SL - 34, renowned for their pronounced fruit flavours, grow interspersed with the tall Bourbon trees that were first brought to the region by Aida’s great great grandfather.

-----

Fashioned after the stories of Ethiopian processing methods, Aida developed this process to highlight the underlying fruity aspects in Finca Kilimanjaro. After the fresh ripe cherries come in from the field they are pulped and then submerged in water for 48 hours to ferment. Every 12 hours the fermentation is interrupted by adding fresh water and agitating with wooden paddles. After the 48 hours are complete the now clean parchment goes back to the fermentation tank to soak in fresh water for 24 hours. Finally, it is sent to the drying beds. This process tends to give the cup a heightened acidity and juicy body with flavors of caramel and stone fruits.
