Delicately fruit-forward, complex, multi-layered. Bergamot, lychee, honeysuckle, lemon verbena, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Bright, richly bittersweet structure with high-toned acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Integrated, flavor-laden finish.
Produced by Wilton Benitez entirely of the Geisha variety of Arabica. Processed by the kōji method, in which the coffee fruit is first sterilized and then fermented in a bio-reactor and inoculated with a selection of Japanese kōji (Aspergillus oryzae). This mold species breaks down starch into simple sugars and is commonly used in the production of soy sauce, miso, sake and shōchū. After whole-fruit fermentation, the coffee is pulped and subjected to a second fermentation phase. A bean-sealing process follows, carried out through impacts of hot and cold water, before the beans are dried by machine for 46 hours. Founded in 2013, modcup coffee focuses on fresh roasting and distinctive natural-processed coffees. Visit modcup.com for more information.
Balanced, deep, elegant and inviting, this experimentally processed Geisha is characterized by tropical fruit, bittersweet citrus, and rich aromatic wood notes.
