It is truly one of the most unique profiles we have tasted while working in coffee for over 8 years. It is produced by Diego Samuel Bermudez one of the most known farmers in Colombia and named after his youngest daughter Letty Bermudez. In the region of Cauca at 1960m on his farm El Paraiso, he dives into experimental approaches to fermentation like no one else. 

The complex processing is a little bit like a secret recipe or formular and only gives an idea on how much work went into it. Here are the main steps Diego did with that coffee:

1. Harvesting of 90% ripe cherries, 10% of pintonas (semi-ripe) cherries.
2. Wash the cherry with ozonated water to decrease the microbial load.
3. First phase of fermentation in aerobic cherry (oxidation) for 60 hours in tanks with pressure relief valve at a temperature of 18 degrees Celsius.
4. Pulped
5. Second phase of fermentation in anaerobic mucilage for 36 hours at 18 degrees Celsius with the addition of Leuconostoc bacteria.
6. Thermal shock washing (in order to transfer and fix the secondary aromas developed in the different fermentation phases of the culture medium).
7. First: Water at 35 degrees Celsius.
8. Second: Water at 12 degrees Celsius.
9. Controlled drying for 29 hours, with air recirculation at a temperature of 35 degrees Celsius and relative humidity of 25%, until reaching a grain humidity of between 10% and 11%.
10. Packaged in grainpro and stabilized for 15 days.

This rare Geisha varietal will surprise you with clear aromas of candied peaches, milky oolong tea and fresh Mangos.

It is insane!
