Single Origin Coffee Description

Extended fermentation simply means to draw out the fermentation process beyond the 'traditional' period to achieve a cup profile that is unique and fruit driven with increased sweetness and complexity.

This coffee was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours, before being placed in grain pro bags (steeped in water) for 6 hours. Coffee is then placed on raised beds until ideal moisture content is achieved, and later placed inside grain pro bags for a further two days.

Historically, Colombia only produced washed processed coffees - think clean, crisp and balanced. Since the FNC (Federación de Cafetera de Colombia) revoked the restriction in 2015, producers have been experimenting with progressive processing methods and are contributing to a new Colombian coffee landscape.

Lucky for us, they’re excited about sharing these interesting and delicious coffees with us, and the world!
