Nicaragua - San Pedro WashedHorsham Coffee Roaster
Tasting Notes: Pineapple, Rum, Coconut
Harvesting and Processing:
To create this stunning coffee the cherry was hand harvested by pickers selecting only the ripest cherry from the H3 Hybrid trees. These trees were created by crossing Caturra with Ethiopian landrance in an effort to increase genetic diversity. It produces very good quality cherry at high altitude. You can read more on the World Coffee Research website.
After harvesting the coffee was pulped to remove fruit and defects and then fermented in sealed bins with a specific strain of yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) made by Lallemand. Yeast is always present in coffee fermentation but using a specific strain in a controlled environment creates a unique flavour characteristic and in this case it tastes like pineapple, run and coconut! This is truly stunning special fermentation microlot and it taste like no other washed coffee. We scored this a very high 88.5 points and this is one not to be missed.

This is special. Buy it!
I think this may be the favourite coffee I have bought from Horsham coffee roaster. I'm trying not to use it up too quickly.
It was pretty much "as described on the tin": pineapple, coconut, rum! Not what one expects from a coffee but refreshingly different. I'd have ordered an extra kilo, but had all gone
I’ve been trying a few different fruity style single origin coffees and this tops the list so far.
Really smooth and very pleasant on the palate.
My partner, (who hates coffee but loves the smell of it! lol), said it smells sweet, like candy floss! Which l actually think is a good way to describe this coffee!
