Scoby Kombucha Fermentation Process Specialty Coffee Beans

Café 1959's José Giraldo presents a Pink Bourbon coffee processed using an innovative and experimental method called Scoby Kombucha Fermentation (SKF).

This distinctive process commences with the careful selection of ripe Pink Bourbon cherries, which are then placed in sealed tanks for a 12-hour anaerobic fermentation. Subsequently, the cherries are submerged in water, where José and his team introduce a continuous oxygen supply, akin to a fish tank, for a duration of 348 hours.

This continuous oxygenation breaks down the pectin in the coffee cherry, resulting in the formation of a Scoby-like layer of microorganisms on the surface. Following this, the cherries undergo sun drying, vacuum sealing, and a three-month aging process.

We are delighted to introduce this coffee, exuding tropical fruit aromatics and a tart sweetness reminiscent of Port Wine.
