Guatemala, Finca Gascon

Guatemala, Finca Gascon

36.00 EUR

First coffee of the season from Finca Gascon and it is so fresh and delicious. We had it shipped to our roastery early because we will be brewing it along- side Felipe himself in Darcy’s Kaffe, Copenhagen, for the occasion of the WOC festival. Felipe and MOK go way back and of course it won’t be his only coffee on our shelves this year. This Geisha is a hybrid washed and it goes through a double oxidization process, hence its name. The cherries are oxidized a first time on a fermentation pile for 48 hours, creating heat inside because of all the sugars oxidating. Then, to create a cleaner cup profile, the fermentation process is broken in two, meaning the cherries are depulped and oxidized for a second time, another 48 hours, after which they are washed and put to dry for 12 to 18 days.
