Zero Mile FKA 30 Mile:
Since winter 2020, we have been offering “30 Mile” as our very own Zentvelds single estate. Hence the rename to Zero Mile! We keep aside our own beans, to offer exclusively as a true single estate bean. Matilda, the lightest roast is the sweetest, lighter roast alternative. We may very rarely add in another local Northern Rivers estate when their beans become available in a small batch and ours are getting processed – sourced within 30 miles of our Northern Rivers NSW coffee plantation and roastery. Each grower selected practice real sustainable eco-thoughtful farm management with biological and organic practices at the fore.
1/3 of the beans are dried within the cherry fruit skins. Because the cherry and mucilage (thick, sticky fruit layer between the bean and the cherry) are full of sugars, when they are dried they create a heavier body with alluring fruit cake and berry notes and spicy overtone, at the same time lowering acidity.
The other 2/3 of the blend are wet processed and honey processed ripe cherries for lovely sweet fruit, pleasant brightness and acidity.
30 Mile blend is vacuum packed in 200g, 500g or 1kg bags all with one way degassing valve within 24 hours of roasting.
This is a small batch roast. Occasional wait for next roast date, as stocks allow.
