A very sweet, natural processed coffee with notes of tropical fruit, stone fruit and a juicy acidity.
This Colombian is part of our Two of a Kind drop. We've fired up the roaster and put through two delicious Colombian coffees to showcase the distinct difference between natural and washed processing methods.
Each coffee is delicious alone, but they’re best side-by-side to truly taste the radically different flavours - which is where this Two of a Kind 500g Bundle comes into play.
Our Colombia Villarazo is a natural processed coffee, meaning the coffees are dried in the full cherry prior to de-pulping.
Coffee is handpicked in order to use only the ripest cherries. After fermentation the coffee cherry is kept whole and laid out on raised beds for drying until the desired moisture content is reached (11-12%). Regular turning of the coffee is required for mold prevention and to ensure even drying.
Once the coffee is properly dried the outer husk of the skin and dried fruit are removed mechanically and the raw coffee is stored ready for shipment.
This process can take several weeks as the raisined fruit imparts its juices and flavours into the bean resulting in a sweet, tropical cup with juicy acidity.
