Join us as we explore the different process coffees, from the bold and fruity natural process to the nuanced and refined washed process and discover the world of taste that awaits in your coffee cup.
The natural process coffee, also known as the dry process, is an ancient method where coffee cherries are laid out to dry naturally under the sun. This process allows the beans to absorb the sweetness and vibrant fruity flavors from the ripe fruit. Natural process coffees often boast bold berry, dried fruit, and wine-like notes, celebrating the unique terroir of their origin.
In the washed process, freshly picked coffee cherries undergo meticulous washing to remove the outer fruit layer. The beans are then dried to the desired moisture content. This method highlights the coffee's intrinsic characteristics, resulting in a clean and bright cup with balanced acidity and subtle nuances. The majority of the Volcanica Coffees are washed process.
The honey process coffee strikes a balance between the natural and washed methods. After harvesting, the coffee cherries are carefully depulped, leaving a portion of the sticky mucilage intact. As the cherries dry, this retained mucilage infuses the beans with a luscious sweetness and complex flavor profile.
Anaerobic Coffee is an innovative fermentation technique where coffee cherries undergo a controlled fermentation process in an oxygen-free environment. This method enhances the coffee's complexity, creating unique and intense flavor profiles, often bursting with fruit-forward notes.
Each coffee processing method offers a distinct taste adventure. From the bold and vibrant flavors of natural process coffees to the clean and refined taste of washed coffees, and the sweet and complex profiles of honey process and anaerobic fermentation coffees, there is a coffee to suit every palate.
