Microlot is among the most fashionable and at the same time undefined terms in the coffee community. There are many nuances in its definition, however, we won't dive deep into it. In general, the microlot of green coffee is the one that can be easily traced back to the number of coffee trees or the area of the farm where the coffee cherries were grown and harvested. As a rule, this coffee is of excellent quality, with bright, quality acidity, syrupy, creamy and enveloping body, with a high level of sweetness and excellent balance!

For the roasters as well as for the coffee shop serving or selling microlots is the right way to attract true coffee nerds and present something unique for the market. Usually, they play like trump cards in every offer list. Besides, specialty microlot is a common choice for coffee professionals to perform with in the championships.
