Description of Coffee |
At our cupping table, we believe that no good flavor is off limits, so long as the producer came by it honestly. That is why we are so excited to share this cinnamon anaerobic lot from Carlos Plazas with you - it is a stunning and delicious example of co-fermentation. This coffee breaks with conventional norms around "what coffee is supposed to be," and what you are left with is a cup that is vibrant, intensely sweet, and distinctly dessert-y.
For Carlos, coffee is a family business. He himself is a 3rd generation coffee farmer and producer, and he currently oversees his beautiful, 19-hectre farm (aptly named Bellavista Estate) alongside his wife and son in the small Colombian town of Suaza. It is there that he produced this stunning co-fermented coffee, which we commissioned through Royal New York. This lot was processed anaerobically by fermenting the coffee with cinnamon tea before being laid on a patio for drying. Co-fermenting processes such as this one are becoming increasingly common, particularly in Colombia. Whether it is passionfruit or pineapple or - in this case - cinnamon, co-fermentation is a creative and honest way to introduce new flavors to your cup.
Have you ever enjoyed a piece of cinnamon bread with your morning coffee? Think of this cup like that tasting experience. It is intensely sweet and yet crisp like an apple, and it reminds us of that perfectly buttered and toasted piece of cinnamon bread - the one with just the right amount of cinnamon and brown sugar liberally sprinkled on top.
