We can't get enough of these coffees from Diego Samuel Bermudez Tapia! We've featured three of his coffees before ("Rosa Té," "CH-08," and "Road Trip") and we are thrilled to be offering another one. Surprisingly, this one is a washed process coffee, not double anaerobic, but it tastes very, very similar to Rosa Té and Road Trip, both of which were double anaerobic fermented coffees. It has absolutely electric acidity, like a very intense white wine. However, that acidity is balanced by tremendous strawberry lemonade sweetness, and there are some florals like rose as well. This coffee is SWEET! We are picking up hints of cotton candy and bubblegum too. 

Diego Samuel has done many experiments, varying the percentage of ripe and semi-ripe beans, the oxidation time, and then fermentation process/time. We had been under the assumption that these absolutely wild flavors were coming primarily from the double anaerobic fermentation but this coffee appears to tell us otherwise! Whatever the magic is, Diego Samuel has got it, and we could not be any happier to be offering another one of his simply incredible coffees to you.
