Coffee overview

A sublimely-sweet cup from producer Diego Bermudez. This extended thermal-shock washed Pink Bourbon is another example of flavor profiles that break expectations about what coffee can taste like. A very cloying strawberry and watermelon sweetness can be best compared to sticky fruit roll-up candy. Small compliments of passionfruit, lychee, and sugar-free sweeteners round out this cup.

Coffee flavor profile

Strawberry, watermelon, fruit roll-up.

Acidity: tropical
Sweetness: cloying
Body: sticky

Funk: Level 1 (funk detected)

Recommended brewing

Filter: The "Gabi Standard" recipe of 1:18 with a fine grind presents the best clarity in a cup dominated by sweetness. Lower ratios that push for more sweetness will become ever-more cloying.

Espresso: 20:60 is a fun turbo, although, more traditional shots and even milk drinks can have a lot of expression with this coffee.

We use 60 hardness, 20 buffer water heated to 198F in all of our recipes.
