Colombia Wilton Benitez - Special Release
Special Release - This coffee will be roasted on the week of the 1st and 15th each month while quantities last.
This unique coffee comes from Granja Paraiso 92 from producer Wilton Benitez in Piendamó, Cauca. Paraíso 92 is a highly innovative farm with its own processing plant, microbiology lab, and quality lab. This particular coffee is a washed tabi that has undergone a double anaerobic thermal shock process. The first anaerobic fermentation phase involves adding specific microorganisms under carefully controlled conditions. Afterwards, the coffee is pulped and then subjected to a second fermentation phase. When the second fermentation phase is complete, a thermal shock process is carried out through hot and cold-water shots in an effort to improve and boost the organoleptic characteristics of the coffee. The result is a coffee unlike any we've had before with exotic notes of tropical fruit and spice and intense sweetness.
