"Richly fruit-toned, complex. Dried mango, cocoa nib, cascara (coffee cherry tea), lilac, cedar in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with winy acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Fruit-driven finish with a bittersweet undercurrent that lends complexity."
Our signature washed process and an evolution of the Tropical punch washed we introduced in 2021. Several fermentations are blended together to create an overall flavor perception similar to fruit punch. This season we are using 4 yeast strains. Some provide Tropical fruit notes, while others add more cherry, grape, and berry like flavors.
The cherries are pulped and then fermented in sealed bags, each one with a different yeast strain in it. After fermentation and drying separately, the coffees are blended back together for milling.
