November Box


El Paraiso

This month we're highlighting a producer that we're humbled to be able to work with, Diego Samuel Bermudez Tapia. We were introduced to him and his farm El Paraiso by Koffee Route in 2019. Since then, we've been consistenly surprised by the level of quality, uniqueness, and innovation in the coffee that Diego has produced. He leads with experimentation and innovation, which is at the core of our own ethos.

The coffees in this box, two El Paraiso (plus Inza), are all from Colombia, and showcase different processing from coffees from the region (special fermentation, the eco-enigma process, and sugar-cane decaf).

A few extra treats in this months box. A little sampler of our newest decaf, the Inza from Colombia. And, we've partnered with Nufs Bites again to offer a little giveaway (a 3 month subscription to our coffees + Nufs Snack bites).

El Paraiso

Sweet Ginger Lime

A coffee that we brought in directly from El Paraiso, this is a special fermentation Castillo.
-
Starting with a mix of 95% ripe and 5% semi-ripe cherries, the coffee is float sorted and ozonated to reduce initial microbial load. Anaerobic fermentation then proceeds for 36 hours, followed by thermal shock, and then controlled drying for 34 hours.

El Paraiso

Eco-Enigma Regional

This is a recent arrival direct from El Paraiso. The coffee is Caturra and Castillo from Bolivar in Cauca Colombia, where Diego was born.
-
Eco-Enigma is a process from El Paraiso that is applied to coffees from neighbouring producers - in this case, from his place of birth. Enigma is a closed circuit air recirculation and temperature controlled system. It uses condensation and recirculation to minimize the environmental impact of processing while creating replicable conditions to dry coffee to between 10-11.5% humidity regardless of climate factors.
