Not-for-profit TechnoServe and Partnerships for Forests have released a guide which provides information on Ethiopia’s Arabica coffee and the wild forests and semi-forests where these coffee beans are grown. Titled ‘Ethiopia’s Forest Coffee: An Illustrated Guide, the booklet also provides information such as cupping scores and flavor profiles of samples from nearly 100 cooperatives and mills from across the Ethiopian zones of Illubabor, Jimma, Kaffa, Bench Sheko, and Bale.
Sinopia takes immense pride in offering you the coffees from these forests with special care and interest in Benchi Maji, Teppi and Djimmah offers.
The Asia Pacific Quality Control (QC) team recently conducted a 9-month test to explore possible ways to maintain coffee quality while minimizing the environmental impact of storing coffee. To do this, they evaluated the difference between storage with air conditioning (AC) and without it. The experiment was made considering 3 key storage factors Oxygen, Temperature, and Humidity the standard for those factors is less oxygen, 20-25 ° C (68-77 ° F), and 60% respectively. Finally, the team concluded that there is no significant difference in the coffee cupping score between the storage with and without air conditioning (AC).
