You know that feeling when you long for a really good cup of coffee – the kind of coffee that wraps itself around your taste buds and won’t let go until your brain goes: “Ping – HAPPY”. This coffee tastes like a hug from one of your favourite people! It’s warm, it’s sweet, it has a super bright and complex acidity – equivalent to a big old smile - and just makes you happy. It also has a really pleasant nutty note which gives it depth and a long lasting aftertaste. But please don’t take our word for it – smell it, taste it, enjoy it!
This coffee has undergone a relatively new type of processing called washed anaerobic fermentation; this means the fermentation process, where sugars contained within the coffee seeds are turned into different types of acidity and other aromatic compounds, takes place without the presence of oxygen. This allows the producer to gain much better control over the fermentation process. It can be slowed down and stretched out over a longer period of time which results in an incredibly clean and well defined cup profile and increases overall quality and consistency.
This coffee is very well suited to Espresso as well as Filter preparation (filter machine, Cafetière, Stove top etc.).
