The producer developed an innovative coffee process called "TERMICO" or Thermic Process.
The coffee is first picked at their ripest to maximize their sugar content which kicks this process off. The coffee is heated with some of the mucilage left on the parchment. The sugars start to break down and caramelize which results in a sweet and fruity flavor with a round and balanced cup.
This coffee is a great example of the types of innovations that are pushing quality to new heights and a great contrast against the Natural process that we found in the Ethiopian. As we cycle through various coffees it will be important to observe the relationship between how a coffee is fermented and its resulting tasting notes. We're going to have a great month ahead of us!
