KNOW THE COFFEE
The Jumping Ant is a washed Arabica of the Selection 9 varietal that has been carefully hand pulped to ensure that each bean is completely damage free. This is a Light Roast taken out just at the first crack so you can expect a bright brew with citrus flavour notes.
KNOW THE GROWER
This beautiful Arabica coffee comes from our partner farmer producer organisation in the Biligirirangan Hills. This region, BRT as it is fondly known is a magnificent forest with elevational gradients that go from 800 to 1600m! This unique range in altitude enables all major forest types and this in turn produces a magical cup of coffee!
The Jumping Ant (Harpegnathos saltator) is a species rather more egalitarian in nature. Unlike other ants, their colonies consist of only a small number of individuals where there are only a few differences in body size and behaviour between the queen and other ants. In Jumping Ant colonies, some worker ants can mate and lay eggs just like the queen. Jumping Ants are active predators, hunting in the early hours of the morning. As their name suggests, they leap - often as far as 10 cm distances! They leap mostly to catch their prey - flying insects! We love the jumping ant and Biligirirangan Hills is the where we observed this creature for the very first time - a tiny nest underneath the staircase of the field station.
