The ‘Spectrum’ lot is from Savage Coffees, a project by renowned coffee producer Jamison Savage. For several years he has been producing exceptional coffees using carbonic maceration methods. In collaboration with our green bean producer Project Origin, Jamison created the ‘Spectrum’ lot by placing the whole coffee cherries into an anaerobic, or oxygen-free environment before flushing it with CO2. The coffee is left in this state to ferment for extended periods, before being removed and further processed as a washed coffee. The ‘carbonic’ CO2 environment allows the coffee to ferment slowly and for longer periods of time without risking over-fermentation.
An exceptional example of how extended fermentation combines with traditional washed processing, this geisha has notes of white florals, green grape, lime and bergamot.
Coffee beans are judged on a 100-point scoring system that assesses body, balance, uniformity, sweetness, clarity and acidity. Coffee scoring 80+ points is considered specialty coffee.
