STORIES, RAW & REAL

Partner Spotlight: Augee of Kabisera Kapé

Augee grew up on a farm in the Philippines where each day started with the smell of coffee. The smell signified that it was time to get up and the first sip fortified all the farmers for work before the sun was up. The coffee was freshly made with coffee grown on the farm but harvested differently than what we are used to. Rather than harvest the fruit and wash it once it was a ripe cherry red, they allowed the fruit to wither on the tree, exposing the coffee bean pit. With a dried bean, roasting and grinding are not necessary. Instead they boiled the bean with the withered fruit still on it to enhance the already bold flavor to create a cup of strong, sweet, nutty, and chocolatey coffee.
