NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Organic Flores Wongawali Ngura

The small island Flores sits at the eastern end of the Indonesian archipelago between Timor and Sambawa. Named by Portuguese sailors after the underwater gardens on the island's eastern end, Flores has a distinctly "Portuguese-tinge" to it within the languages and cultures of its indigenous peoples. This coffee is sourced from family owned farms located on the slopes of the Inerie volcano in the Ngada regency of Flores, one of the big islands in the Lesser Sunda archipelago of Indonesia.
The Wongawali farmer group has pooled resources to improve upon processing coffee using wet-hulling techniques (called “Ngura” in the Bajawan language), a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed, giving the coffee its hallmark Indonesian flavor. We have been big fans of the fragrant, big-bodies coffees like Ngura Bajawa (and counterpart Bajawa Ngura) for many years and will be incorporating this excellent coffee in our Mondocello espresso. But it stands well as a single origin espresso on its own in a medium-dark roast.
It also presents well in Chemex and other drip formats, evincing notes of butterscotch, chocolate, walnut and molasses. Great body, typical of fine wet-hulled Flores coffees. Organic and Rainforest Alliance certified.

Business partner/roaster/barista extraordinaire Andrea Spella has the best espresso in Portland. When we acquired "Rossalina" we knew we were in for an extraordinary ride together.
"Just wanted to drop you a note at your request. My wife and I came across your coffee at Tina's Restaurant in Dundee. We loved it the minute we had it. We are from Jersey and were visiting oregon (which we love) for the second time in two years. I love finding unique and sustainably grown coffee. Do you actually know which roast Tina's has, I was not sure so I ordered four roasts which I thought were possibilities. They are great so far. "
