Colombia Marta Rubi
This coffee is roasted just on the line of our lighter to medium developed coffees, and we highly suggest trying out lower temp water (approx. 201F to start) and medium ground coffee before going finer. We hope you enjoy this coffee as much as we do!

Natural Anaerobic Fermentation. The coffee is picked and sorted to high standards to remove coffee that is under-ripe or past peak ripeness. Damaged coffee is also sorted out.
A refractometer is then used to measure the sweetness of the coffee and ensure that only coffee above a decided threshold is used.
The coffee is allowed to ferment in a sealed vat which gives the coffee growers control over the amount of air available to natural yeast that feeds on the coffee cherry's natural sugars, allowing for more control over the production of lactic acid that will affect the over all taste of the coffee.
This process is essentially starving the yeast of the normal supply of oxygen available in open air fermentation tanks and is known as Anaerobic Fermentation.
