Cherries are run through an optical sorter after which they are fermented inside the cherry for two days. Then they’re spread and dried on raised beds in a drying patio.

A rich juicy bomb of a coffee, with mixed berries, triple-choc cookies and a rich, sweet red wine finish.

We’ve loved this coffee ever since we first got it as it’s a perfect example of what we love in natural processed coffees - a very sweet cup that retains a clean profile and doesn’t throw booziness in your face. We loved how it opens up with recognisable notes of forest fruit and then releases pleasant chocolate flavours that reminded us of the full on experience you get with a good triple choc cookie, while the finish has a rich and slightly dry profile reminiscent of a glass of a bold red wine. It seems that you loved this coffee as much as we did as we sold out our initial two sacks of it in about a month and so we decided to get some more.
