Fermentation in coffee: the basics

As we saw earlier, the coffee treatment process "only" serves to pulp the coffee cherry to obtain a bean with a moisture content suitable for storage and delivery. Whatever the process used to treat the coffee cherry, there is always a fermentation stage.

What interests us today is controlled fermentation. We'll look at 3 basic types of fermentation: carbonic maceration, aerobic fermentation and anaerobic fermentation.

Pulping processes

The little green beans we use to bring you the black gold you love so much are not so easy to obtain. It's on farms, often on the other side of the world, that the coffee cherry is transformed into a green bean ready for shipment.

Third Wave coffee, speciality coffee

The third wave

what is third wave or specialty coffee? First and foremost, it's a way of doing things that highlights the region, the terroir, the grower, the cultivar(s) used and the know-how of each and every one of us throughout this great process. It's about giving the grain all the know-how we can offer to help it express itself fully. It's also about having a tasting lexicon and major events all over the world. It's giving coffee back its noble notes!
