In 2005, Ninety Plus Founder, Joseph Brodsky, traveled to Ethiopia for the first time and decided to make it home for the coming years, having fallen in love with the people, the food, the language, the culture, and the semi-forested coffee lands in Ethiopia’s southwest.
Kambera derives its name from “Kampi” site of Kampi Cooperative where a visit to which inspired – along with a hike to Ethiopia’s wildest coffee forests on the same trip – the coffee reforestation model currently employed at Ninety Plus) and “berry”. Kambera is now cultivated at Ninety Plus Gesha Estates in Panama, a proof of concept of the model inspired by Joseph’s very first visits to Ethiopian coffee communities and coffee wilderness.
Ninety Plus coffee is naturally grown without the use of chemicals. One of the key growing elements at Gesha Estates is the incredibly clean water from rainfall and water from natural springs and underground wells. Additionally, each area of the estate has unique micro climates that give us a broad range of flavor profiles from a single farm.
Accounted as one of the most famous farms in the world, Ninety Plus has shared its specialty coffee production ideology with producers in Panama since 2007 with strong focus on environmental protection. Ninety Plus participates in the reforestation of 1,000 hectares in Panama. In past years, Ninety Plus coffees has won most high-level coffee championships.
The Ninety Plus Gesha Estates were designed with inspiration drawn from coffee growing wild in its natural habitat in Ethiopia. The Gesha variety, along with all heirloom coffee varieties, comes from the understory of wild forests in Ethiopia. These heirloom varieties of coffee live very long lives - up to 100 years or more - and produce relatively small amounts of intensely aromatic coffee. Founder Joseph Brodsky had an opportunity in 2009 to acquire this large property (~200 hectares) and had a vision of reforesting its historic cattle farming lands with native tree species while planting the shade-loving Ethiopian Gesha coffee beneath the canopy. With its first significant production in 2014, coffee from Ninety Plus Gesha Estates was used to win the first of 5 World Brewers Cup Championships in 6 years year to date (2020). Ninety Plus Gesha Estates proves that coffee can be utilized to reforest and sustain tropical lands while producing the highest valued coffees in the world.

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 in helix formation during 20 seconds, starting from the centre, 5 revolutions per phase. The last pouring phase ensures no grinds persist on the filter wall.
- At 01:00, 02:00 and 03:00, confirm the filter bed is flat and uniform. Avoid generating cavities and craters.
- Adjust only grind size and water temperature.
- Grinding: Target 600-800μm. Example: 28 turns from the finest setting on Commandante.
- 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.
