Look pro go...
Our Mooiboy (Pretty Boy) coffee is an ode to all the pretty boys out in the wild riding their polished bikes, matching cycling kit, shoes, helmet and sunglasses. We all have the typical Mooiboy in our cycling group who is following the latest cycling trends on every level. We take our hats off and bow deeply to these innovators on the bike as they make the cycling world prettier and point us on the unlimited possibilities. The time that you were taken serious wearing pro-team sponsored kits is light years behind us and we like to show off who we are on the bike, one person in two separate lives and cultures. We leave the performance part to the Stravaganza but feel we will go faster wearing and drinking the latest fashion.
Hors Categorie Coffee
This coffee is the first of our Hors Category Coffees. Hors Category Coffee means that the coffee beans have a very high score on the specialty coffee scale. We aim to source for these coffees only beans that have a cupping score above 88 points. Another nice part is that we want to source the beans directly from the farm or coop. These two key points will give us a great coffee to roast but the farmer a great price for their excellent product. It also provides us with an continue relationship between the sources. For every Hors Category Coffee we will give you all the necessary info about the farm and the coffee.
Suke Quto is a producers association in the Guji zone in the Oromia region in Sidamo. The washing station and mill is established in 2005 with the vision to work with sustainable and environment-friendly coffee farming practices. The coffee trees grow in the shade of the natural forest canopy what is a sustainable way to produce coffee since it is allowed to grow naturally alongside other plants that keep the soil and wildlife diverse and healthy.
The coffee is first washed with spring water and then mechanically pulped. The mucilage is removed by wet fermentation lasting between 36-72 hours depending on weather. The coffee is then dried on raised African beds for 9-13 days.
Our Mooiboy coffee beans are medium roasted to leave the natural acidity and citrus flavour inside. It has a nice full body with a taste of Jasmine, Peach and Chocolate.
