収穫したコーヒーチェリーに、60℃程度から10℃まで一気に温度を落とす「Thermal Shock」を与えています。これは、チェリーの状態で発酵が進んでしまうことを防ぐためのテクニックです。その後果肉を除去したコーヒー豆を、専用の酵母菌、そしてスイカと一緒に100時間ほど発酵させています。



San Rafael Watermelon is a coffee produced at a family-owned farm located in Pereira, Risaralda. It undergoes a "Thermal Shock" process, where the temperature of the harvested coffee cherries is rapidly dropped from about 60°C to 10°C. This technique is used to prevent premature fermentation while the cherries are still intact. Afterwards, the pulp is removed, and the beans are fermented for approximately 100 hours with a special yeast and watermelon.

This coffee offers a refreshing sweetness reminiscent of watermelon and melon, making it a delightful and high-quality choice.

For the best taste... it's recommended to wait over two weeks after roasting. This allows the flavors to fully develop and lets you enjoy the beans' potential to the fullest!
