Del Agua is a brand new group of small producers located in the North of Colombia. The region, la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, is the tallest mountain in the world that borders an ocean which creates a very unique growing region.
The sourcing agency, Forward, was introduced to the group by world leading producers, La Palma Y El Tucan. This is the fifth lot they have ever produced, and it is a complex natural anaerobic process. The natural process has been a classic processing method in coffee forever, known for its primitive methods of production that still yield huge flavours albeit simpler style.
Anaerobic means "without oxygen" meaning the vessels this coffee was fermented in didn't contain any oxygen at all. Oxygen is removed when the coffee is added and valves prevent any from entering in during fermentation while still allowing CO2 to escape. This combination of classic and complex processing leads to a very intense body and huge stewed fruit tones.
If you like wacky, fun coffees - this is a can't miss! This competition grade anaerobic coffee will give you a big wow on the first sip. With lots of berries notes of raspberry and blueberries, grape juicy mouthfeel, finish with hints of chocolate liquor winey notes. A coffee that will stun your palate with loads of bursting aromatics.
