Blind Assessment: Elegantly floral, richly sweet. White peach, lilac, cocoa nib, lemon-thyme, oak in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with vivacious, juicy acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. Gently fruit-driven finish with notes of lemon-thyme and oak.
Notes: Produced by Jairo Arcila and Cofinet of Finca Santa Monica entirely of the Castillo variety of Arabica, and processed by an experimental fruit maceration process in which the whole fruit is first fermented in an anaerobic (limited oxygen) environment with wine yeasts and macerated fruit. After fermentation, the coffee cherries are pulped and placed to dry on raised beds with macerated fruits until the ideal moisture content is achieved. Founded in 2013, modcup coffee focuses on fresh roasting and distinctive natural-processed coffees. Visit modcup.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A fruit-forward, experimentally processed Colombia fermented with macerated peaches, a method that amplifies the stone fruit inclinations of the cup.
