0.5 kg Colombia Wush Wush
Wush Wush is a rare variety of coffee and not much is known about it. It is believed to have made its way from Ethiopia, apparently originating in and around Bonga in the Southwest of Jimma. It arrived in Colombia around 30 years ago.
Its long and pointed cherry has similar physical characteristics to that of Gesha. It is also similar in cup profile with jasmine, rose, lemongrass and stone fruit flavour notes and sweetness with a complex acidity but with a more pronounced body than gesha.
The Fermentation process is 36 hours of aerobic fermentatyion, followed by 100 hours of anaerobic fermentation all in the cherry.
Drying process: Dried in the sun for 18 days with a maxium temperature of 38 degrees celcius and maxium humidity of 15%, then 6-8 hours of mechanical dryer ( Silo) to finish drying and leaving the coffee at 11% humidity.
