2015 World Barista Champion Sasa Sestic & Producer Mauricio Salaverria endeavoured to create a special Natural process profile they called Supersonic. All coffee is picked on the same day and is placed on African beds creating a thick layer approximately 30cm deep. For the first three days the coffee is turned every 24 hours to reduce fermentation. After this period the coffee is spread thin to increase clarity. Once moisture has reached 16% the coffee is moved to a cool, dark storage area for seven days for the sugars to stabilise. Finally the coffee is moved to African beds for another seven days or until beans have a moisture content of 12%. In total, it is a complex, four week process, but the result is well worth it.
Best rested for 7-10 days after roasting before use.
Our premium single origin coffees are roasted once week, and as such there may be a delay of up to 48 hours before shipping.
