Colombia Letty Bermudez Gesha Thermal Shock

This intense Gesha comes to us from our new friend Diego Bermudez. This now iconic coffee goes through a double fermentation thermal shock process, which yields intense sweetness reminiscent of peach and mango, perfectly balancing the florals from the Gesha variety.

Story

In twenty twenty-four, Diego Bermudez needs no introduction. He has long been in our periphery, as we've tasted coffees produced by him since the days of his 'red plum' process, and since, Diego has skyrocketed into true coffee rockstar status. Both himself and his tight-knit team have produced competition level coffees that have appeared (and won) on stages around the globe. With his unique 'thermal shock' process, Diego has cultivated a unique and pointed flavor profile which he has deemed 'Gesha Letty.'
This classic Gesha profile is elevated from its classic citric, floral profile to a cup laden with peach and mango. The post-harvest process is complex, beginning much like others, with it's keen cherry selection. What follows is where the true innovation lies- Diego has honed in on a specific subset of inoculates which allow for the curation of flavor precursors in the cup. The numerous steps of this fermentation include sixty-hour fermentation in a tank, along with an additional long fermentation within a sealed tank under pressure and inoculates. This long, multi-stage fermentation is followed by the thermal shock, where the coffee undergoes a rapid energy exchange, which opens and closes the pores within the coffee seed. The result of this fermentation is unique, imparting a strong but balanced flavor profile where peach is the dominant note without overpower the cup.

Green Cost

The subject of paying for green coffee is inherently complicated. While the amount paid is very important, the payment terms and type of contract negotiated during the purchase are also paramount. Paying $5/lb of coffee can be a great price, but could be detrimental to a producer if the payment terms exceed that of their needs. Here we will dive into not only what was paid for the coffee, but how the coffee was purchased. There is a glossary of terms to be found below which will aid in your understanding of industry terms.

Farm Gate - This reflects what is paid to the producer of the coffee at the farm level. Oftentimes in terms of our relationship coffees, FOB is fairly close to the farm gate price, except for countries like Ethiopia and Kenya, when it is very difficult to trace back all the way to the producer.

FOB - Free on Board. This means that the seller is responsible for any overland fees that happen before the coffee is on board the ship. This is our most frequently listed green cost, as it is the most simple way to present what we pay a seller, but it does not reflect what the person growing the coffee was paid.

EXW- This most often reflects the 'spot' price that we paid for a coffee. All of the cost is paid by the importer, and more often than not the FOB price as well as the transport costs are unknown.
