Description

From now on Pearl Kite is absolutely dedicated to Honduras’ coffees. It is a mix of two very special cooperatives and two different processing methods:

50 % Honduras, cooperative Aprolma, washed arabica

50 % Honduras, cooperative Combrifol, natural arabica

 

Cup profile:

A strong body, creamy mouthfeel and aromas of cherry-cognac and lots of nougat.

 

Recommended for:

Pearl Kite is especially suitable for espresso machines, but also works with moka pots and fully automated machines.

 

Whole beans:

We sell our coffee unground as beans so that you can prepare the coffee as freshly as possible. By grinding yourself, you make sure that all the aromas end up in your cup. After just 30 minutes of exposure to air, ground coffee loses a large part of its aroma. More information is in our FAQ.

If you don’t have a grinder, we can grind the coffee for you. Just let us know in your order under “Order Notes”.

    :

    Ein Espresso ganz nach meinem Geschmack. Samtig leicht mit milder Säure, hellen Früchten und Erdnussbutter. Der bleibt lange in Erinnerung 🙂

    (verified owner):

    Nach vielen Experimenten (Espressosorte, Mahlgrad und Anpressdruck) bin ich mit diesem Espresso glücklich:
    – er schmeckt lecker (kräftig und gut verträglich),
    – hat eine schöne Crema,
    – ist fair produziert und gehandelt.

    Leider ist er zu schnell alle.

The green coffee for Pearl Kite comes from Aprolma and Combrifol cooperatives in Honduras.

Aprolma, Honduras

The ACRIM cooperative is located in southern Ecuador near the border to Peru. It was established in 2002. At the moment ACRIM is made up of 280 members, who own 1.5 hectares on average, which they cultivate with a mixed crop of coffee, bananas and oranges. All fields belonging to ACRIM members have been certified organic since 2015.

In addition to quality control and processing (such as the mechanical drying process), training courses and seminars are offered for the members at ACRIM’s building in Zumba. The cooperative has an excellent quality assurance program. They have their own cupper, who cups the coffee on the day of delivery and gives it points for quality.

When the producers deliver their coffee in the morning, they receive the base rate of $1.80 per libra (approx. 500 g). They thus receive $3.60 for 1 kg of parchment coffee (in Pergamino). Farmers whose coffee scores more than 84 during the quality test receive a bonus of ¢10 per libra. The cupper is thus very busy during the harvest season and cups 20 samples per day.

Altitude: 1,300m – 1,900 meters
Region: Zumba, Rio Mayo
Processing: Arabica, washed, manual harvest and sorting
