Coffee Spotlight: La Colombe Kenya Kiriti

 

 

Kenya - Kiriti

FROM THE GEEK FILE

• COUNTY: Murang’a
• DISTRICT: Mathioya
• CO-OPERATIVE: New Kiriti Farmers Cooperative Society
• WET MILL: Gondo
• PROCESS: Fully washed and sun-dried
• VARIETY: SL28
• ALTITUDE: 1900-2000 Meters
• CUPPING NOTES: Blackberry, Shiraz, Rhubarb

 

Why You’ll Love It: Unique growing conditions give this auction lot coffee the tart, juicy flavors of red wine.

 

Story of the bean:  The volcanic soil in the Mathioya District is a deep red color and is rich in iron. This fertile ground produces ripe, red coffee cherries that are hand-picked and pulped the same day at the Gondo Wet Mill, part of the New Kiriti Farmers Cooperative Society.

The cherries are wet pulped and fully washed using clean water from the Kananahu stream, before being laid out to dry in the bright Kenyan sun. Extremely high altitudes and the volcanic soil create unique conditions that give this coffee a complex balance of tartness and sweetness - not unlike an excellent Shiraz.

 

 

About the company

Todd Carmichael and JP Iberti founded La Colombe on a simple but profound premise: America Deserves Better Coffee. By sourcing and roasting with care, and borrowing on ancient and modern coffee traditions from around the world, the two have built a successful company and an elevated coffee experience for Americans.

Product Launch: Califia Farms Launches First Dairy-free, Nitro Draft Cold Brew Latte

 

Beverage visionary and RTD cold brew leader untaps next great coffee adventure: introduces nitro-powered cold brew mixed with almond and macadamia milk in sleek, recyclable on-the-go bottle

New York, New York – July, 2016 – Califia Farms today announced the launch of Califia Nitro Cold Brew, the first completely dairy-free, nitro-infused cold brew coffee latte. The new Califia Nitro Cold Brew line marries creamy almond and macadamia milks with a cold brew made from a specially-curated, signature blend of direct-sourced beans, and infuses it with a jolt of nitrogen that brings out the natural sweetness of the coffee in a silky micro-foam reminiscent of a dark draft beer. Packaged in a sleek, recyclable, on-the-go aluminum bottle, Califia Nitro Cold Brews come in three on-trend flavors: Latte, Mocha, and New Orleans.

Cold brew coffee has experienced dramatic growth (115%) in the past year with 24% of consumers reporting they are drinking it, according to Mintel.[1] Califia Farms, which is already a leader in RTD coffee drinks (and outpacing Starbucks in specialty retailers[2]) aims to lead innovation in the fourth wave coffee craze. The company, which is known for disrupting retail refrigerator shelves with its iconic, curvy Almondmilk carafe, showcases the new Califia Farms Nitro Cold Brews in a similarly disruptive eye-catching RTD aluminum bottle that is unique to the category.

“With our new Nitro Cold Brew, we have untapped the next great adventure in coffee: a creamy, yet dairy-free, cold brew latte that explodes in a thousand tiny bubbles of rich coffee flavor,” said Greg Steltenpohl, CEO of Califia Farms. “We know, and baristas confirm, that Almondmilk provides the perfect, velvety milk base to allow the complexities of coffee to shine through. Our Nitro Cold Brew features our signature coffee blend, curated with directly-sourced Columbian, Guatemalan and El Salvadorian beans, deliciously amplified by nitrogen’s effervescence.”

Califia Farms’ expert R&D team has developed an exclusive process for creating and maintaining thousands of nitro bubbles in the cold brew coffee and almond-macadamia milk blend in its RTD aluminum bottle.  The coffee beans for Califia Farms Nitro Cold Brew are sourced through direct, ethical trade relationships that enable supply chain transparency, encourage sustainable growing practices and, ultimately, benefit the growers through premium pricing. The selected coffee beans are roasted and ground for Califia Farms’ proprietary cold brewing and nitrogenizing process.

“Califia Nitro Cold Brew is a healthy, non-alcoholic alternative to a refreshing craft beer experience,” continued Steltenpohl, “and is a tastier, plant-powered option for fans of Nitro coffee who like it creamy and prefer not to consume cow’s milk.”

Alternatives to cow’s milk have been increasingly displacing dairy milk in America’s diet and Nielsen recently reported that almond milk is America’s favorite milk substitute, boasting sales growth of 250% over the past five years.[3] Califia Farms, with its iconic bottle and premium-tasting Almondmilk, is a significant force behind that revolution, accounting for 50% of the nut-milk category sales growth in the natural channel.[4]

The Califia Nitro Cold Brew line-up is completely vegan, dairy-free, GMO-free, soy-free and carrageenan-free and includes: Califia Nitro Cold Brew Latte, a perfectly balanced blend of Califia’s award-winning creamy Almondmilk, direct-sourced cold brew coffee and nitrogen-infused micro-foam; Califia Nitro Cold Brew Mocha, with an extra rich blast of cocoa, and Califia Nitro Cold Brew New Orleans, which is jazzed with uniquely smooth NOLA-influenced notes of chicory.

“Whether purchased to drink on-the-go or poured into a glass for a gleaming head of foam, we are excited to be making this kind of frothy artisan brew conveniently available to consumers at retailers nationwide, while also serving the growing ranks of customers (particularly millennials) seeking premium, clean energy swaps for high-sugar carbonated and coffee drinks,” concluded Steltenpohl.

Califia Nitro Cold Brew will begin shipping to retailers across the U.S. starting in July; look for it in the refrigerated coffee section.

Technology Spotlight: Oomph Portable Coffee Maker

 

 

The Oomph is the worlds fastest hand powered portable coffee maker and travel cup: Pressure brewing the perfect coffee in under 2 minutes! 

Elegant in design, The Oomph pressure brews the perfect coffee at home; in the office or when out and about travelling.

 

Oomph Portable Coffee Maker Pre-Sale

 

Created by a desire to always have an amazing cup of coffee, The Oomph is a simple to use coffee maker insulated by an air barrier that keeps your freshly brewed coffee at the perfect temperature. It uses your movement to stir – ensuring for a great cup of coffee from the first to the last sip.

 

 

 

 

 1. Add coffee. The Oomph has an internal marker indicating the perfect amount of coffee to use. We found the perfect amount to be between 25 and 28 grams of coffee. We have tested with all kinds of grinds (eg; espresso, cafetiere and omni) - and they all produce a wonderfully smooth cup of coffee!

2. Add hot water. Simply fill the Oomph with hot water and wait for a few seconds. A fill line indicates how much water to use. If you'd like a smaller or stronger coffee simply use less water.

3. Add pressure. Pressing down the outer shell of the Oomph forces pressurized water through the ground coffee; the perfectly brewed coffee then travels up the exterior walls and back into the internal chamber, resulting in an incredibly smooth and rich coffee. (This process also stirs the coffee)

Once brewed you can pour the coffee into a cup or grab your bag and keys and take The Oomph right out the door with you!

 

The Oomph is way more than just a just a fancy Cafetiere and (unlike a french press) pressure brews the coffee - resulting in a deliciously smooth and rich coffee. We have performed numerous tests against several coffee devices with the Oomph coming out on top. See below where we've pitched the Oomph against the French Press.

 

 

 

The Oomph can hold upto 13fl oz (around 380ml) of brewed coffee within the internal chamber. For this amount of delicious coffee we suggest between 25g and 28g of freshly ground coffee. The Oomph has been designed with an internal line so you don’t need a measuring spoon or scale.

 

 

Want to Add Sugar and Milk? We’ve got that covered too. Once you’ve plunged fully, you can unscrew the lid and add your milk & sugar. Screw the cap back on and enjoy your cup of coffee.

 

 

Super Quick to Clean. We’ve designed The Oomph to take a matter of seconds to clean and be ready for reuse. Remove the shell, tap out the grinds and add a small amount of water. Return the shell and plunge up and down for around 20 seconds and pour out the water. You are now ready to brew again.

About the company

I’m Christine Spliid, originally from Denmark but now based in London. CROBAR cricket flour energy bars started as an idea which combines my passion for endurance running, healthy food, travelling and sometimes, the unconventional.

I have travelled to more than 40 countries, and was fascinated with the number of people in especially South East Asia, who eat insects on a daily basis. Many of the insects look similar to shrimps, so it did seem strange that eating insects is almost unheard of in the West. Learning about the health benefits let me to explore the idea of introducing insects back at home, and having studied Psychology & Business at Warwick University, I was immediately fascinated with the challenge of changing people’s perceptions and attitudes towards eating insects.

The result: UK’s first cricket flour energy bars, which I named Crobar; ‘Cr’ for crickets, ‘cro’ rhyming with pro for protein, and the association with the tool crowbar.

It is indisputable that current meat production is unsustainable, and we need to seriously look at other food and protein sources. Farming insects is much more sustainable than farming cattle and chicken, and there is no rational reason why we don’t already eat insects in the West.

By making the crickets into flour, it becomes an extremely versatile ingredient, which can be used not just in cricket flour energy bars, but in so many recipes. There are more than 2000 edible insect species available, and the kind of food products that could incorporate insect flour is only limited by your imagination.
