Shinkai Brazil Steeped Coffee Bags
Shinkai steeped bag is one of the easiest ways to enjoy a specialty coffee at home, office, road trip, in-air. Literally anywhere as long as there is access to water (hot water is preferable but you can still use it for a nice cold brew - might take longer than 6 hours).
Inspired by the famous Japanese explorer submarine Shinkai, designed to explore the deepest points in the ocean, we designed our steeped coffee bags to submerge in your cup and take you on an exploration journey of coffee flavours.
This micro-lot was grown on Sitio Canaã (which translates to “The Promised Land” in Portuguese). This small farm lies outside the small town of Piatã. Piatã is a unique and distinct coffee-growing region. The coffees produced here tend to be very floral, sweet and complex, and quite different from those that we source elsewhere in Brazil.
After hand-pulping the beans were taken to a dry mill where they were sun-dried in greenhouses with their mucilage still attached—spread in layers and raked several times a day. Once coffee reached its optimal moisture content, the beans are separated into numbered lots, to be stored and rested in parchment in a purpose-built warehouse prior to export.
Preparation is simple:
A mug + 230ml of hot water + Shinkai Bag + 5 mins = Coffee Journey
