Colombia Diego Samuel Bermudez | Hyperprocessed

Finca El Paraiso, as the name itself suggests, is the exceptional heaven of growing and processing coffee. Diego Bermudez is the man behind and a true genius, whose work is constantly filled with innovative ideas. Aside from him, his family shares a similar entrepreneurial, scientific and enthusiastic spirit.
Diego "Thermal Shock" Bermudez is constantly experimenting with new processing methods. And doing a great job. Check the porocessing workflow for this coffee:
To create this stellar coffee, ripe cherries are collected and washed with ozonated water to reduce possible microorganism contamination.
Then starts the fun part.
The first part of anaerobic fermentation takes place for 48 hours as whole cherries in a fermentation tank with a pressure release valve at 18 degrees Celsius.
The second part of fermentation also takes place for 48 hours at 21 degrees Celsius with the cherries depulped but left with the mucilage.
Then comes a thermal shock to transfer and fix the secondary aromas developed in different fermentation phases.
The first phase of the thermal shock is washing at 40 degrees Celsius, and the second phase washing with water at 12 degrees Celsius.
Then it's time to dry the beans. At Finca El Paraiso they dry the cherries for 34 hours, with recirculation of35 degree Celsius air and 25% relative humidity, until reaching a moisture level between 10% and 11%.
Then the beans are packaged in Grainpro bags and stabilised for 15 days.
For the final touch comes vibrating, electronic and manual sorting to reach the required physical quality standard.
To ensure quality on the way to our roastery, coffee is vacuum sealed. And it's a true pleasure for our head roaster to cut open this bag of goodness.
