We chose Processing as a place to start as this is without doubt the biggest influence on cup profile and the taste difference should be easy enough for all to get. All coffee cherries as picked off a tree must undergo some form of hulling, fermentation and drying to produce the raw coffee bean in a state which can be roasted. 3 basic ways to do this are washed, natural or anaerobic. Often the choice of processing depends on the facilities present at the processing plant, for instance, large drying patios required for naturally processed coffee might not be available on the steep hillside of a farm in Guatemala, or volumes of water required for washing might not be available at a processing plant in Ethiopia.

1. Washed:

• In this process the raw coffee cherry goes through a washing process to soften up, ferment and remove the bean where it is then dried.
• Coffees tend to exhibit lighter notes, floral tones, more refined acidity and a lighter body.

• The coffee we selected for this is Banko Gotiti. How did you find it?
• We got notes of Jasmine, Apricot, Orange Blossom
• Cupping score of 87

 

2. Natural:

• In this process the raw coffee bean stays within the cherry where the fermentation takes place, until it is dried.
• Coffees tend to exhibit deeper, sweeter notes with more body than acidity. Depending on origin ranging from chocolate to stewed fruit.

• The coffee we selected for this is Kabira.
• To us this coffee tastes of Toffee, Peach, Blackberry.
• Cupping score of 87

3. Anaerobic:

• In this process the raw coffee cherry is fully submerged in water and deprived of oxygen, softened where the bean is then removed before drying.
• Relatively new processing technique with still a lot of variety. Tends toward a huge uplift in the range of flavours with explosive notes compared to washed or naturals. Massive acidity, sometimes verging on sour like a sour IPA.
