The Ninety Plus story begins in Ethiopia, coffee's original homeland, where it's very first coffees were produced by the hands of Joseph Brodsky, who amazed judges in world competitions through both its complexity and clarity, creating a wave of change within the industry. The Ninety Plus unique ‘natural process’ coffees were shared with coffee growers and producers in Volcan, Panama beginning in 2007; this initiated an overhaul of speciality coffee processing practices throughout all the world.
Inspired by the thousands of heirloom Ethiopian coffee varieties growing wild in forests within their natural state, Ninety Plus began developing coffee farms in Panama's ideal coffee lands in 2009, restoring both its forests and increasing biodiversity in the process.
This natural caturra, named Drima Zede pays homage to its initial development in 2013, in an aim to improve common coffee varietals through deeper fermentation. Located on the slopes of the Baru Volcano, in Volcan Panama, this coffee is rich and sensational in the cup, with flavours of 80% dark chocolate, fresh figs and a body reminiscent of a fantastic shiraz wine.
