Our partners at Cofinet continue to introduce us to some incredible producers - and coffees! True to form, this coffee is produced by Cofinet owners Carlos and Felipe's father, Jairo, and processed using an extended fermentation method (EF2).
SINGLE ORIGIN ESPRESSO 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!
