Behind the Scenes
Established in 1972, Kateshi is one of the first coffee estates in the country. Modern-day Kateshi is governed by two principles: sustainability and equality. The estate strives to maintain excellent community relations and protect local natural resources.
This naturally processed coffee has enjoyed an extended anaerobic fermentation period of up to 72 hours before sun-drying on raised beds.
Kateshi has been recognized in Zambia for challenging stereotypes within the coffee farm industry. They were the first farm in Zambia to employ women to stereotypically men’s roles, such as driving larger farm vehicles like tractors and bulldozers. This intense focus on gender equality for Kateshi means this coffee directly affects women’s empowerment in the coffee farming industry.
What does the score mean?
Speciality coffee is coffee’s answer to the A-Star. It’s the coffee crème de la crème. The only coffee Mum deserves. Grown with care at high altitudes and hand-picked at perfect ripeness, speciality coffee is hard to beat. Its flavours are bright and exciting, its profile naturally sweet… perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch!
How do you know if it’s speciality in your bag? Take a peek at the cup score (it’s the number out of 100). Is it 80 points or above? Then it’s speciality! Below 80? Then it’s a commodity coffee…. Blehhh. Don’t worry, though, here at Two Chimps we ONLY source and roast high-scoring, naturally sweet speciality coffees for your mug. Because we know you and your ma want the best!
Quick tip from the Chimps. Try not to pick speciality coffees based only on the number. Go for a score above 80, always, but remember the nitty-gritties of the number are often down to the opinion of the Q Graders who cupped the coffee. Exceptionally high scores tend to indicate coffee that’s really rare or a bit wacky in flavour.
The best approach? Be guided by your tastebuds and choose a coffee you love!
Fresh, carefully roasted coffee beans are what you want. Over-roasting is like scorching your toast big time – you get flavours that are bitter and burnt.
We never over-roast any of our coffees here at TC. Why? Because we don’t need to. All our beans are speciality arabica and hand-picked to ensure peak ripeness. Ripe beans are naturally sweet (think about a ripe, burstingly juicy blackberry), so provide us with delicious layers of flavour to highlight in the roasting process.
Compare this to supermarket stuff and instant blends, which are often over-roasted to mask the unpleasant taste of low-grade robusta beans. Over-roasting hides these bad tastes… but replaces them with burnt ones!
Choose speciality Two Chimps instead, and you’ll find a cup bursting with bright flavour and natural sweetness!
