The Frinsa Collective is focused around a family-owned estate known as Frinsa, run by Wildan Mustofa. The "collective" refers to the family's purchasing of coffee from neighbouring producers for processing and sale from the Finsa Estate. Wildan and his family are progressive and are focusing on experimental processing more than is commonly found in Java. The Collective produces Honeys, Naturals, anaerobic-environment fermentation, and is also separating out single-variety lots.
Our first purchase from the collective is a washed processed lot but we hope to buy more of their experimmetal lots in the near future.
Wildan oversees the agricultural and processing side of the business, while his wife Atieq handles contracts and their son Fikri does the cupping.
The coffee is rinsed, sorted, and depulped the same day it's delivered, and fermented for 18 hours. It's washed to remove the mucilage, then dried on patios for 7–10 days.
We really enjoy the sugary sweetness of this coffee that is balanced out by the nutty praline flavours and soft citrus notes.
This is a great, easy drinking filter option.
