We're so excited to announce our first coffee from the Bayter family of El Vergel Coffee Farms in Fresno, Tolima. We are inspired by the great lengths they go to produce the finest yields, and their constant drive for new innovative techniques to process coffee.
This coffee was a collaborative effort of coffee people across the globe. Their Java variety was fermented with the aid of MSCO-11 Koji (a rice wine starter). This is evenly spread and coated around the coffee cherries before their natural process begins. This influences the active microbiome during the natural drying phase.
The result is vibrant and intriguing, with delicious fruit notes we taste as Mango, Raspberry and Watermelon. Special thanks to the Bayter Family, Christopher Feran, and Kaapo Paavolainen for allowing us to share this incredible coffee with you!
