This outstanding coffee is named after the Bombe Mountains where the majority of this lot is grown. The process for this coffee follows an innovative dry fermentation protocol and adds no water to the tank during fermentation, hence a “dry” fermentation. The dry fermentation involves letting the coffee seeds rest in climate-controlled fermentation tanks.
The coffee rests warm and dry which kickstarts fermentation faster than normal, activating esters during fermentation and resulting in a hearty, complex and notable fruit flavour. This process also uses a lot less water and has helped to promote environmental sustainability.
Sounds good right? Tastes amazing.
