Indonesian Frinsa Edun Anaerobic Natural Filter
“Sophisticated Funk” was the name of the game with this coffee and it worked! This lot is named “Edun” meaning crazy although this coffee only has 3 day anaerobic fermentation compared to the Rujak Bebeg which had 14 days! This is the last lot for this year from the Frinsa experiments run in collaboration with Nordic Approach and it finishes the ride with a cup that is bright like kombucha and full like dark chocolate.
This is the second time around we’ve had the Frinsa Edun, and if you thought the last one was a lil too funky then you’ll like this. With the same notes but much softer on the palette. We’d even go as far to say… possible for… every day… drinking?
The Frinsa collective was started in 2010 by producer Wildan and his wife Atieq Mustofa. With an eye on quality they have built up the collective and now have 6 main plots of land located in West-Java all at between 1300 and 1500 masl. They also own a wet mill, dry mill and a well ventilated storage facility (which is important in Indonesia) which means they have complete control over the whole process. This lot is from the 60 hectare Weninggalih plot and is made up of the Sigarar Utang, Andung Sari, Ateng, Timor (Borbor, Timtim) Varietals.
