Colombia Risarlada, Cultured

new

The Colombia Risarlada, Cultured is an unique coffee consisting of aromatic vanilla, lovely lingering, creamy body, and long caramel finish. 

Strong 91.5 cupping score which has a tasting note of Pineapple, coconut, vanilla, passionfruit, caramel.

Here's a quick explanation of this experimental process: 

We have the raw material in one hand (pulped coffee), the starter culture (lactobacillus) in another and finally the fresh fruits which are coconut and pineapple. 

All this is doing its own fermentation process simultaneously but separately, then when we have the right conditions (brix and temperature) to mix the three of them we proceed.  First the fermented fruit and coffee is put together in tanks and finally the starter culture is added, the tanks are closed, and we start a common fermentation process (anaerobic), temperature and oxygen is regulated depending on the fruits fermentation level and the tanks are opened regularly. After 3-5 days this fermentation is completed, and the coffee is then hulled and taken to the drying beds.
