One of three sons of coffee farmer Segundo Lasso, Wilder has a passion for working with rare varietals and innovative post-harvest processing methods. Formerly a vet, he's applied his knowledge of genetics to a growing programme that is producing coffees with remarkably complex flavour profiles.
This specific lot has been through an extensive extended controlled fermentation process. After harvest, the ripe cherries were fermented in an aerobic environment for 48 hours They were then pulped of their mucilage before a second fermentation of 120 hours (this time in an air-tight tank) and then finished with sun-drying until they reached the desired moisture content.
The SL28 variety, rarely grown outside of east Africa (particularly Kenya) can propose deeply rich fruit flavours and these come through in the cup, we've tasted plenty of morello cherry and even sweet cinnamon notes. Interestingly, the texture can be tea-like in quality - a surprise given the elongated fermentation process.
