From Myanmar a fantastic micro-lot of coffee grown exclusively by women, certified by Women Coffee Project and processed with an experimental processing method that involves a carabonic maceration of the fruits.
It is worked with a particular Honey method which involves a carbonic maceration of the fruits. The 51 women of Nwar Ban Gyi village harvest the Red Catuai variety coffee cherries and process them within 18 hours of harvest. After a selection in floating tanks, they place the whole cherries in 500-liter fermentation tanks filled with water and with a one-way valve that allows gas to escape. After 48 hours of fermentation, the saturated water creates foam that begins to come out of the valve. This is the moment that indicates the end of fermentation. The cherries are sent to the pulping plant, where 75% of the mucilage is removed from the grain. At this point they are ready for drying in 12/14 days.
In the cup emerge hints of citrus and sweet dried fruit, reminiscent of nougat. Malic acidity is well balanced by sweetness and good body.

The Caffèlab project was born as a collective, a group of people with different skills, different past and present but the same passion: quality coffee.
The world of coffee is changing. In recent years we have been witnessing a strong cultural evolution of coffee. Some consumers are beginning to realize that this product can be a universe of varieties and aromas and that a conscious taste can give us extraordinary sensations.
We wanted to make our blends through experimentation, because looking for quality does not mean fossilizing on a taste, but going in search of it. We have also started to use different extraction methods, because coffee is not just about espresso. Finally, we understood that roasting can totally change the taste of a coffee and that you can also experiment by roasting your own coffee, at home, at different levels, with different profiles.
This is why we have created Caffèlab: to allow you to create your own personalized coffee blend, through our configurator, making available the best single origins and professional equipment.
From experimenting with new blends for ever-changing coffee.
Caffèlab was born as a collective, a group of individuals with diverse skills, backgrounds, and experiences but a shared passion: high-quality coffee. At the core of the project lies the experimentation with new coffee blends using innovative extraction and roasting methods, aiming to achieve a unique and ever-evolving taste.

Coffee blends draw inspiration from the classic tradition symbolized by Italian espresso. The selection spans from classic espresso bar blends to the intense coffees of Neapolitan tradition and the fragrant 100% Arabica, traceable and certified.
Organic certification begins with coffee grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, additives, and pesticides. All harvesting and processing practices must be recognized as organic by an international body, ensuring consumers of the ethical and genuine production of the product.
Green coffee is unroasted coffee. The green color of the beans belongs to coffee that has not yet been roasted.
