What Is A Microlot Coffee?
Microlot coffee is a small volume of uniquely harvested and processed coffee that is isolated from other lots on the farm.
Microlot coffee allows producers to investigate and experiment with unique processing and drying techniques in addition to new harvesting methods. In doing so, and since these trees yield smaller amounts of coffee, there is more focus on quality, sustainability, and traceability, making Microlot coffee more distinctive. The time, effort, and focus producers spend monitoring the production and processing stages ensures the Microlot is of the highest quality. This results in a more carefully harvested, sorted, and processed premium lot.
What is Single-Estate coffee?
Single-Estate coffee refers to coffee grown in one specific farm with capabilities of producing large volumes. Although single estate coffees produce larger volumes, there’s still more focus on creating a flavor profile that possesses characteristics of the specific area where the coffee was harvested.
