EDINSON VILLA 300g coffee
Den här produkten är tyvärr slutsåld.
Our good friend and colleague Edison Villa continues to spoil us with amazing coffee. With meticulous precision he lets newly harvested berries of Caturra and Typica ferment anaerobically (with minimal oxygen)in closed barrels, before drying them in the sun. The result is a mighty coffee with notes of tropical fruits. You have to try it to understand!

This coffee is the perfect way for us to showcase our Lykke partner, Edinson Villa in Peru. Edinson is a bonafide coffee personality! Literally born next to the coffee plants in the tropical regions east of the Andes.
Apart from running his own farm, roastery, and cafés in the small cities Pichanaki and La Merced, Edinson is also our partner on-site in Peru and he puts tremendous effort into finding the best coffees in the region as he drives around in his pick up.
Together with Delvis, from the small sub-region of Agua de Nieve, he manages our own little Lykke farm and future process station.
At Edinsons own farm, he and his sister Madeleine grow coffee of the varieties Caturra, Bourbon, and Typica. All in the shade of native trees.
As a first introduction to Edinson and Lykke Peru, we are happy to have curated this specific micro lot. We have blended Caturra with a small part Typica to balance the fruity and floral notes.
Right after harvest, we place the coffee cherries in barrels filled with water to minimize exposure to oxygen. In the following 18 hours, a controlled fermentation happens, where the sugar from the pulp is broken down and organic acids are created. This process creates exotic flavors and develops a more nuanced cup.
After the anaerobic fermentation, the cherries are sun-dried for 30 days before being separated from their pulp and ready for shipping.
For the best experience of this coffee, use our brew guide for pour-over and prepare yourself for deep flavors of ripe tropical fruits, such as candied pineapple and peach with a balanced sweetness and floral notes.
