At Jozi we take our coffee seriously, which is why we’ve teamed up with Extract Coffee Roasters to provide the best coffee experience possible. Our coffee has been specially selected to satisfy every coffee drinkers needs. At the moment we serve Dr Strangelove, which is perfectly described by Extract Coffee Roasters below:
“Our 2021 Dr Strangelove brew is a daring and delicious natural-process Brazilian coffee. We taste tropical dried fruits, garibaldi biscuits & those decadently sticky, candied German almonds!
Stop worrying and love the brew has become a mantra for Dr Strangelove. Each year we look for exciting and accessible speciality coffee, epic with milk and without, to be enjoyed by coffee novices and connoisseurs alike, this year’s Dr Strangelove is no exception.
The beans come to us from the Fazenda Barreiro coffee estate in Brazil which has been in Francisco Otávio Lotufo’s family since 1820.
Over the past 30 years, Francisco and his family combined their coffee-growing roots with a commitment to environmentally & socially responsible farming. The family is dedicated to preserving the farm’s woods, water sources, native birds and animals, and supports 30 families of employees who live on the farm.
This exciting coffee goes through quite the process…
Ripe coffee cherries are picked and transported the same day to a wet mill where they are washed and sorted. The skins are removed leaving the sticky flesh of the cherries intact, the pulped cherries spend three days on a concrete drying patio and are turned more than 15 times a day.
After three days the coffee is slowly dried for a further three days on suspended covered terraces. On the seventh day, it is placed in rotary driers until the moisture content reaches 11%. Finally, the bins are milled to remove the dried flesh of the cherry then graded and sent to us for roasting! It’s this intense process that gives the coffee the sticky-sweet fruit flavours of dried mango and currants that we love.”
Filter coffee has been a successful addition to the menu, with speciality guest coffees making appearances on our daily guest batch brew. Speak to us about what we’re brewing on the day!
