Heleanna is known for her love of experimentation and willingness to take risks in order
to create a transcendent cup of coffee. Her farming and processing practices are the
absolute gold standard, diverse and honed over time. Along with immaculate washed
coffees, her sundried coffees show an exquisite and unique cleanliness, along with a
distinct citric character like lime along with the other fruits they bring to the table.
Another process we’re always excited about is her “Kenya process,” which was inspired
by the dry fermentation practices she witnessed in Kenya in order to preserve water.
Motivated by the same concern, Heleanna’s Kenya process coffees are depulped, then
fermented in cement tanks for 36 hours before drying, bringing the same cleanliness
along with a distinct spice character.
