If you like insanely fruity, juicy coffee, look no further! This is our first ever "adulterated" process coffee. This coffee was grown by Jairo Arcila at the farm Santa Mónica. This coffee was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 72 hours with the pulp on. During this fermentation stage passion fruit pulp and wine yeast were added. The cherries were then pulped and placed to dry on raised beds with passion fruit pulp placed amongst the coffee until the ideal moisture content was achieved.This process has imparted an almost unbelievable flavor on this coffee. It literally tastes like passion fruit juice. When hot there are some blueberry and grape notes as well. This coffee is roasted to a "standard light" level. It’s important to note that neither “standard light” nor “Nordic light” give any signs of roasty flavor, no matter how high you push your extractions. The only difference is that at a given extraction percentage, let’s say 22%, the Nordic light roast will have slightly more acidity and slightly less sweetness than the standard light roast. This can cause issues if you are equipment-limited to let’s say 20% extraction (like if you have a very cheap grinder). A Nordic light roast coffee may always taste underextracted (sour, vegetal) at that yield, whereas a standard light roast may give you enough sweetness to be an enjoyable brew.
