In Guatemala, we call green coffee beans "café oro", or "gold coffee" in English, because of the potential value it had for landowners in the early 1900s.

What is Natural Process?

The process refers to the strategy used to transform a ripe coffee fruit into a dried seed that can then be roasted. The most common strategy is the Washed Process, meaning that after harvesting, the coffee fruits are pulped and then soaked in water, which creates an environment conducive to fermentation that eats away at the nectar covering the seeds. After this “bath,” the seeds are no longer sticky and are then dried for several days before being bagged up. In a Natural Process, the coffee fruits are harvested and then immediately laid out to dry. No pulping, no washing, nothing. The whole fruit stays on the seed throughout the whole drying process, which takes upwards to 30 days, and is the cause of the incredible sweet and, well, fruity flavors you find in this coffee.

COFFEE SUGGESTIONS

The subtle and intriguing flavors are best highlighted in a light or medium roast.  You can absolutely use darker roast profiles, but we don’t particularly recommend it as the beautiful natural notes will be hidden behind the roast.
