Background:

Microlot

Microlots from Java are sourced either as single-estate lots or as blended lots from multiple producers that achieve a high cup score. These are both the highest-quality offerings from Java as well as the highest priced, with the most traceability.

Frinsa Collective

The Frinsa Collective is focused around a family-owned estate known as Frinsa, run by Wildan Mustofa. The "collective" refers to the family's purchasing of coffee from neighboring producers for processing and sale from the Finsa Estate. According to green-coffee buyer Piero Cristiani, Wildan and his family are progressive, focusing on experimental processing more than is commonly found in Java. The Collective produces Honeys, Naturals, anaerobic-environment fermentation, and is also separating out single-variety lots. Wildan oversees the agricultural and processing side of the business, while his wife Atieq handles contracts and their son Fikri does the cupping.

The coffee is rinsed, sorted, and depulped the same day it's delivered, and fermented for 18 hours. It's washed to remove the mucilage, then dried on patios for 7–10 days.
