Mustafa by Ana Mustafa - Colombia Washed
Roast Profile:- Medium -
This is quite a special coffee to me, it's been nearly 5 years in the making and well worth the wait.
These coffees are both produced by a very talented producer called Ana Mustafa.
Ana runs the LaREB cooperative with the support of Herbert and other great producers with the aim to support smaller or less experienced members with production advice and professional quality control. They also export coffee directly from the farmers which secures the supply chain and transfers more value back to producers.
Anas’ coffees with LaREB contribute to 40% of the money and 35% of the coffees produced by LaREB!
I first started chatting with Herbert about 5 years ago, about coffee roasting I think as LaREB were setting up their new roaster in their lab in Colombia and since then we've kept in touch about all things coffee (and whisky!). At the end of February 2020 just before the pandemic hit Herbert was doing a tour of Europe for LaREB and we finally got to sit down together in person for a night in Edinburgh where Herbert spoke to us about the amazing work LaREB is doing for the coffee growing community in Colombia.
This coffee has had a double fermentation along with an extra 24hr fermentation after washing and depulping, making this a super clean, sweet and creamy coffee, perfect for espresso!
The amazing attention to detail and passion behind this coffee and the people who have produced is why this coffee really holds a special place for me.
