At the Eenhoorn we burn high-quality coffee in a traditional traditional way.
Coffee is made from coffee beans. These coffee beans are the seeds of the coffee berries that grow on the coffee plant. Coffee is grown in as many as 80 countries around the equator, including the Dominican Republic, Brazil, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sumatra and Cuba. The coffee plantations where the coffee is grown are often from small coffee farmers.
Coffee plants grow quickly. After 6-12 months they are planted in the field to be used later for production. Only after 3 years does a coffee bush have good coffee berries to harvest. Most coffee bushes can be harvested once a year. In some areas the coffee can only be picked manually because of the high location. Temperature, altitude, climate and soil conditions affect the quality of the coffee.
Different varieties of coffee
There are different types of coffee. The first coffee bushes come from Ethiopia, Coffea Arabica. That was the variety Arabica Typica, widely used. Since then, many other varieties of coffee have emerged from this Arabica Typica. The ancestor of this Arabica Typica is the Coffea Canephora, better known as Robusta. This species was first discovered in the Belgian Congo, Za & iuml; re. The Robusta is thought to have been crossed with a Coffea Euginoides which is less known to us, as a result of which the Coffea Arabica originated.
There are many types of coffee, but the Arabica and Robusta are the two most important. De Eenhoorn buys high-quality coffee, & nbsp; only Arabica, from different parts of the world.
From coffee berry to coffee bean
Coffee comes from the coffee plant Coffea Arabica, which carries coffee berries. A coffee berry usually has two seeds, the green coffee beans. The meat of the ripe berry is deliciously sweet. The berries start green and usually color (dark) red when they are ripe. Some coffee beans are going to be yellow. Coffee berries must be picked really ripe, because the fruit flesh then contains a lot of sugar. This is very important for good quality coffee. Top quality coffee is actually always picked manually. This way ripe berries can be sorted more easily. It is more and more difficult to find coffee pickers.
A coffee berry usually contains two seeds that fill almost the entire berry. These seeds consist of different layers. First a hard shell, underneath a thin membrane. The two seeds often develop differently in the berry. One becomes bigger than the other. This will be sorted out later.
After picking, the coffee berries are processed in a processing station, called a mill. This can happen in 2 ways. The wet method or washed method and the dry method or unwashed method.
In the washed method the coffee berries are put in a water bath after harvesting. The ripe berries sink to the bottom and the unripe stay afloat. This is how the coffee berries get the first selection. After this process the berries go into a machine for de-pulping. They are stripped of their skin so that the flesh is separated from the seeds, the coffee beans. When the outer layer has been removed, the beans with the last hard horn skin and last pulse residue in a water bath for 36 hours go to ferment or ferment. After this ripening process, the coffee beans are washed again and dried for 4-10 days. Thus the humidity is reduced to 12%. This drying is done on concrete patio's or on "African beds". After drying, the coffee should rest for 30-60 days to ensure that the coffee beans age in a good way. This method generally increases the taste of the coffee beans. Finally the horn skin is removed. The coffee beans are sorted and packaged. This method provides a very high quality coffee, but requires a lot of water and expertise. The washed method is the most common method. & Nbsp;
The unwashed or dry method is the classic way of processing coffee. In this process the coffee berries are briefly washed after harvesting to separate the ripe berries from the unripe and to be dried immediately. This drying can take up to 2 weeks, but 4-6 weeks is still normal. A correct humidity is of great importance: too dry causes the beans to break when removing the skin and other layers. Too wet causes mold and over-fermentation. Only after drying the skin is removed. This is a difficult process because little control can take place during ripening. Finally, the coffee beans are sorted by size and defects. Eventually the coffee beans are packed in bales and shipped. This process is more labor-intensive, but it does yield nice coffee.
A combination of the wet and dry method is also sometimes used for the processing of coffee. The skin of the berry is removed, but the coffee bean with only the flesh is dried on the sun. This takes as long as 7-14 days, depending on the humidity.
The coffee of the Unicorn is roasted in our own roasting company, using fire profiles. Every type of coffee has its own burning process to achieve the right color, aroma and taste. Every week the freshly roasted coffee is tested and evaluated by the coffee panel.
In the first phase, after about 3 minutes, the coffee bean turns greenish-yellow and smells like wet grass. Then the bean becomes more yellow and the smell of hay is given. After a minute or 8 the bean reaches a brown color and smells like freshly baked bread. Then the grain of the bean splits. The coffee bean gets a smell of caramel and becomes increasingly darker in color. The smell of roasted coffee is released.
For coffee from Central America, fruity and floral aromas are released. With coffee from Kenya these are more citrus scents and Brazilian coffee smells especially nutty and sweet. During the burning, sugars, chlorogenic acids, caffeine and acids are formed.
The Eenhoorn Coffee and Tea has two types of branding: filter and espresso. The filter burn has a shorter burn time (light bitter and heavy) and is recommended to be used for filter coffee and caf & tier. The espresso rim can be used for fully automatic espresso machines.
