“So just picture this: You are entering a party. The big door opens in front of you. And soon you will be handed a fluid of perfectly chilled coffee champagne. 5 degrees Celsius is the exact temperature in which the acidity of coffee and sweetness of other ingredients balance each other leaving you with this Geisha coffee aftertaste."
Multi-World Champion, using "Aga/tsby", placing 1st in the World Coffee Events Coffee In Good Spirits 2022, Milan, Italy
SCA SCORE 93.50
FLAVOR ALGORITHM AND DESIGN Ivica Cvetanovski
Roasted light based on conduction and moderate heat application with world class skill and care. Low level of energy application is sustained to focus on the appearance of elderflower, grape and pear characteristics that can be perceived as a champagne-like sensation.
Agnieszka, through her work with the coffee, dubbed it "Coffee by Great Gatsby". We thought about "a Gatsby coffee" would be a suitable title. Aga/tsby was born. This entire lot is dedicated to Agnieszka.

Continuing development with several fermentation formulas at Altieri, showcasing successful experiments to create a Zibibbo-like grape sensation, reminiscent of Passito or Straw Wine.
Aromantic scent with hints of tropical fruit, pineapple, elderflower and citrus. Fresh and fruity with balanced sweetness, hints of ripe tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, white flower and lime. Agnieszka Rojewska enhanced the expression in World Coffee In Good Spirits 2022.
Agnieszka was simulating New Years Eve during her creation and presentation of her design cocktail, illustrating how the drink can be prepared beforehand and finalized for many people simultaneously. Flavor references of yuzu, lime, peach and Geisha coffee aftertaste were the primary flavor characteristics with nice, sparkling fizzy texture - a final result worthy a coffee champagne cocktail, triple-C, hence a CCX morpheme worthy of fermentation formulas and flavor characteristics.
The coffee cherries are manually selected and cleaned to make sure only the complete mature coffee cherries are entering the fermentation phase. Using specifically developed containers to house all the cherries, they remained encapsulated for 192 hours, constantly monitored to secure a consistently executed main fermentation. The cherries are later sun dried in a dedicated greenhouse on African beds at 1,800 masl until 11% humidity is achieved. The coffee cherries are later hulled and placed in vacuum bags to reduce exposure to open air.
As each picked coffee cherry is destined for specific fermentation formulas, we denote each lot carrying the same name with a morpheme. Below is a listing of most common fermentation practices. Please use this reference to better understand the differences between equally named coffees and their fermentation formulas. For example, read a suffix of "NASDX" such as Natural Anaerobic Slow Drying Fermentation".

Our World Brewers Cup recipe, One (1:1:1), for Hario V60-01/02 with Hario VCF-01/02 filters:
- Coffee: 20g.
- Water: 300g @ 93-95°C, TDS: 10-50 mg/l.
- 100g of 20 second pours in 3 total pours at 0:00, 1:00 and last pour at 2:00. Finish at 3:00.
- Pour by pulsing in helix formation during 20 seconds, starting from the centre, 5 revolutions per pulse. Ensure no grinds persist on the filter wall in the last pouring pulse.
- At 01:00, 02:00 and 03:00, confirm the filter bed is flat and uniform. Avoid generating cavities and craters.
- Target a TDS reading of 1.40±0.02.
- Adjust only grind size and water temperature.
- Grinding: Target 600-800μm. Example: 28 turns from the finest setting on Comandante.
- If the flow ends past each minute, adjust your grind settings to finer and respectively for slower flow.
- The recipe, technique and formula is singularly linear and time efficient. Learn more about linearly up- and downscaling our recipe here.
Use water with balanced mineral content to optimize flavor and character. Keep Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) between 10-50 ppm or mg/l. We advise a temperature between 93-95°C for the best brewing experience. Target the following values.
|Calcium (Ca)||0.9 mg/l|
|Sodium (Na)||1.7 mg/l|
|Silicon Dioxide (SiO2)||1.4 mg/l|
|Potassium (K)||0.3 mg/l|
|Magnesium (Mg)||0.2 mg/l|
|Sulfate (SO4-)||<7.0 mg/l|
|Chloride (Cl-)||2.5 mg/l|
|Nitrate (NO3-)||0.1 mg/l|
|Fluoride (F-)||<0.1 mg/l|
Please store in a cool and dry place in order to secure freshness and quality. To ensure best possible experience use within 3 months after roast date and 2 weeks after opening. In various environments and setups, your brewing experience can benefit from opening the bag and closing it. Wait one day to brew. We have invested significant time to research the durability of the coffee by actively refining our roasting algorithms to ensure perpetual quality post 3 months of production. Our flavor-lock packaging technology is based on processing and roasting. This ensures persisting and stable aromas, flavors and pro-experience.
Start using at will. Brew immediately or wait several weeks. Prepare for a championship with a strategy. It all depends on your goals.
We recommend using the coffees by first opening the container/bag one day before the first planned brew to enable a natural aeration of the coffees. Use according to the following matrix and remember these are general observations given parameters such as continent, country, region, variety, altitude, process, etc. combined with Coffea Circulor processing and roasting algorithms.
Plan your acquisition according to production schedules (roasting), event attendance (home/championship) and shipping priority (standard/courier).
|0-3 days||Focused acidity|
|4-7 days||Optimal Coffea Circulor recommended praxis|
|8-14 days||Increased floral perception|
|15-21 days||Increased sweetness|
|22+ days||Increased balance|
|1+ month||Intact sweetness, peak intensity|
|2+ months||Inherent balance, possible reduced florals turning herbal|
