A silky yet crisp 100% caturra washed coffee by KOS Coffee Roasters.
This coffee is a 100% Caturra lot of coffee from producer Benjamin Lopez. Benjamin keeps an extremely biodiverse farm, with a plethora of other fruit trees (banana, avocado, and peach) throughout the coffee shrubs. This keeps his soil high in organic matter and rich in ground cover.
After picking the ripe cherries by hand, Benjamin allows for the coffee to ferment in the cherry for 48 hours in a zero oxygen environment before depulping and washing. This process gives his coffee a clean, but unique and bright flavor profile.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn't want to do it.
