    Wilton Benitez is one of the foremost fermentation specialists in Colombia, his high end chemistry lab in Granja Paraiso 92 releases more and more coffees used in competitions every year.

    The Koji processing method makes this such an interesting coffee with a unique flavour and tactile profile.

    Once picked, the cherries are clean and sterilised with ozone and UV light to remove bacteria and then sprinkled with Koji mould before being placed in an anaerobic bioreactor for 36 hours.

    They are pulped and washed using the thermoshock method of being soaked in hot water to increase fruity flavours and then are soaked in very cold water to lock those flavours in.

    This unique processing sequence increases sweetness and body giving it a creamy almost milk tea texture. It also imparts flavours akin to green tea such as hōjicha which complement this texture well. This is all on top of the usual gesha flavours of orange and passion fruit.

    This is a competition lot that costs over $100/kg to source which we think is fair enough considering the many steps in processing it.
