A classic crowd pleaser! Milk chocolate notes are the dominating flavour of this coffee, followed up with hints of maple & muscovado, all this is backed up with a big body and buttery mouth feel. This is what we call a coffee tasting coffee.

Process

Processing green coffee beans requires fermentation to produce desirable flavours and allow it to be stored without spoiling. There are two main ways to ferment coffee, either with water which we called washed (or wet) processing or without water called natural (dry) processing. Once ripe cherries are picked, pulping them in a wet mill removes the skin, and fermentation processes the remaining mucilage on the bean.

Washed

Traditionally, washed coffee is picked and within 8 hours the cherries are floated in water (and unwanted components are scooped from the top), and then pulped. Then the beans will be washed in water for around 12 - 36 hours and dried in the sun on patios for around a week.

Natural

Natural processing involves none of these steps, traditionally the full cherry is dried in the sun for around a week, then the dried skin is removed.
