Fresh crop Kenyans are back! We were delighted to find flavour notes of juicy fresh blackberries and exotic yuzu fruit in our tasting sessions for the Karatu. 

What's yuzu? Glad you asked. It's a type of citrus fruit often likened in flavour to a lemon crossed with a mandarin orange. 

Tasting homework: expand your palate by trying a yuzu fruit if/when you get the chance. It's always useful to add new flavours to your collection. 


Flavours: Blackberry, Yuzu
Process: Washed

V60 Recipe: 
This recipe is a great starting point for brewing all of our coffees.

Ratio: 15g coffee to 250g water

Water temperature: 94C
Brew time: approx 2m 30s

1. Pour 50g water and allow coffee to bloom. 30 seconds.
2. Pour the remaining amount of water in stages:
   • 50 grams at a time
   • Wait between pours until the water has disappeared just below the surface of coffee grounds.
3. Stop your final pour when you get to your intended yield amount (in this case 250g).

Extra for experts: Try to pour exactly 50g of water in about 10 seconds each time.
