Rob says: We are excited to bring you this experimentally processed coffee from Guji. In this case, the cherries are are placed on plastic sheets on top of the raised beds in piles, up to 15-20 cm thick, the cherries are then rolled up in the plastic and they are left to ferment in this way. After fermentation the cherries are dried on beds as is normally done for natural coffees.
Oh boy what do we love this coffee. Very experimental, but once you get past this crazy lactic start, still accessible enough to attract a wide group of coffee lovers. Cheers!
