We were blown away when we sampled this delicious coffee from don Luis Campos of Cordillera de Fuego! This coffee is processed with don Luis’ very own method he calls Thermal Processing (térmico). The process starts with cherries picked at their ripest, allowing them to have a high sugar content and thus feeding the thermal process. The semi-washed coffee is then heated with some of the coffee mucilage left on the bean. The exposure to the heat starts to break down the natural sugars of the coffee cherries, partially caramelizing them. This inventive process gives the coffee an exceptionally sweet and fruity flavor as well as a round and balanced cup.
