TOP SEED

The crucial first step of choosing the coffee seeds to plant


The history of the fresh cup of Gourmet Coffee you love so much goes back to the coffee seed. It is very crucial to carefully select the seeds for planting because it will determine the kind of coffee that will eventually end up for brewing. Ordinary coffee beans just won’t do. We use several criteria in choosing and preparing the right beans for planting.

1. We pick seeds only from trees that produce the most harvest and with top quality beans. Seeds are never just picked at random. We thoroughly review and evaluate the history of productivity of the tree where the seed will come from


2. We choose trees that are 5 to 8 years old, the age at which they are most productive. We select the ones that are disease-free, not only in their present state but also in their history. Diseases affect the quality of cherries the trees produce and consequently, the seeds.


3. We obtain the seeds from cherries that are almost ripe. Otherwise, seeds may not be mature enough and may not germinate. We get them from the middle branches, the most productive section of the trees.


4. We soak the cherries in a bucket of water for further selection. The good ones stay at the bottom while the bad ones float. We discard the floaters.

 

5. Unlike the coffee beans for roasting, seeds for planting are dried in the shade. Drying them under the sun may kill the seed and they may not germinate.


6. We germinate the seeds within two weeks. Beyond that period, the seeds may die and fail to grow.

Next time you drink Gourmet Coffee, you know that you’re drinking coffee that went through our long process of strict quality standards, going as far back as choosing the seeds to plant. No other company can give you this assurance in quality. After all, WE know coffee.
