Komodo Dragon Coffee
The Komodo Dragon Coffee is a fine low acid coffee with tastes of fresh tobacco, cocoa, and floral notes. Farmed on the small Indonesian island called Flores that is 200 miles east of Bali, and named after the Komodo dragon, or the world's largest wild roaming lizards, this coffee is known for its exciting exotic reputation. The Flores Island is filled with rugged terrain consisting of volcanoes and mountain with elevations as high as 8,000 feet. These drastic spaces, as well as the abundant volcanic soils, create ideal fertile growing conditions for this amazing coffee. Volcanica Komodo Dragon Coffee is 100% pure without any added blends.

Semi-Washed Process: What is the semi-washed process? Semi-washed processing, also referred to as wet hull processing, is when coffee beans are de-pulped, partially fermented, and dried while covered with mucilage. The coffee is dried, and then the beans are then hulled or milled. The moisture and drying balance is later continued, which produces deep green and blue color. This method also provides a heavy body with low acid content for the processed coffee.
