About this coffee
This is a bundle hand selected for this week by the team at Cartel Roasters, What’s Included in this bundle is:
INDIA – RIVERDALE ESTATE – EXPERIMENTAL ROSE YEAST CM – LOT 5 – 2020 LOT
NOTES: BOOZY COMPLEX WINEY NOTES, BLACKCURRANTS, BLUEBERRIES, RAISINS, RICH CHERRIES, CARAMEL AND BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE.
This experimental lot uses a mixture of Rose Yeast sprinkled over the cherries during the Carbonic Maceration process, these a processed by a high pressure technique to create a smoother and delicate flavour profile in the cup
INDIA – RIVERDALE ESTATE – EXPERIMENTAL CM RIPE FRUITS – LOT 8 – 2020 LOT
NOTES: STUNNING BOOZY RUM AND RAISINS, BLACKCURRANTS AND CRANBERRIES WITH A RED GRAPE WINEY FINISH.
More than just Coffee, Riverdale Estate grows spices, and various fruits for both local consumption and export. We asked the pickers to pick over ripe fallen fruits from the trees to add more flavour complexity, Almost like a dunder pit for Rum, though far less gross. The natural yeasts from both the coffee and fruits kick started fermentation. The fruits lend some of their own more obvious characteristics to make a very fruit punch style coffee.
INDIA – RIVERDALE ESTATE – EXPERIMENTAL CM FERMENTATION – BEAUJOLAIS – 2020 – LOT

Done in true Beaujolais Fashion with cherries put in a stainless steel tank and pumped with C02, the cherries ferment for a few days until being released and dried al-la the Natural Process The Resulting coffee tastes of boozy red fruits, with a sparkling acidity and a surprisingly long clean finish for this style of coffee.
