COLOMBIA - Yenni Esperanza (Thermal Shock Washed)
Process (Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK)
Colombia - Yenni Esperanza 200g
In the brew I'm getting:
Passionfruit, mango, and my taste markers are sweet and sugary!
I am BEYOND HYPED to bring one of the most special coffees I've showcased so far. Yenni Esperanza!!! This is a Castillo washed Thermal Shock process, which is a new method only recently developed. I'll explain more about this below but all you really need to know is that THIS COFFEE BANGS!!!!!!!!!!
I've picked out heaps of legit taste notes in this brew when getting it ready for you guys. Like, fizzy peach rings, watermelon, bubblegum, but the final calls i made for the labels are below. (remember, it's all relative and all I want is for you to say THAT TASTES RAD)
**This coffee was purchased through the amazing Cata Export. Cat is a good friend and through her business has been focused on working direct with young Colombian producers who are raising the bar for Colombian coffee. All while helping create healthy access and transparency with some of the most amazing coffees ever produced.
Yenni’s family owned a farm that was isolated, but Yenni and her brother Diego saw the opportunity to grow coffee there. You might recognise the name 'Mr Diego Bermudez' :)
While Diego was doing his studies on Agricultural Enterprise Management, Yenni was involved in the farm experimenting and researching on processing with a growing team of over 1,000 coffee producers families. Today Diego’s name is well known around the world and Cata Export wants to give Yenni a voice too, as her work has also influenced the great success of Finca Paraiso. Yenni and Diego have managed to create new innovative technologies in order to keep the consistency of their outstanding cup profiles, benefiting not only their farm but neighbour farms too, creating a great community of producers in Cauca. So good right?!
Here we are! Process is ready to share and you're all welcome to get involved.
I'm Ben. A coffee professional and lover of rad stuff. Based in Belfast NI, and rocking a wife and 2 kids 😎 They make me suuuuper happy! I have been working in coffee for a while now. It's the best. The last 3 years have been spent as a co founder and project/general manager at a shop called Guilt Trip. I have also spent this time meeting, collaborating and creating with some of the raddest people I know.
With Process I want to connect people to this beautiful world of coffee, and tell stories as I work with brands and the people behind them. Everyone has a story to tell right?! And in the coffee world the stories are usually pretty interesting. On this new platform I want to offer a place of connection, a hub for collaboration and a destination for your higher level coffee experience. To help do this I have intentionally curated a supply of products that I think are awesome and rep worthy. It aint much, but I want this to all make sense. These are only the brands and products that I use, rate super highly, and love to shout about! I hope you're into them. Selling them also puts food on the table soooo that's kinda neat too
All products stocked are considered and selected for you and your daily adventures. Whether that's your barista get up, your next trip, the hike supplies, or just the stuff you need to just get you through that afternoon slump.
