The Termico (Thermic) Process:
The Termico process is a new, experimental coffee process invented by don Luis Campos of Cordillera de Fuego. The process starts with cherries picked at their ripest, allowing them to have a high sugar content and thus feeding the Termico process. The semi-washed coffee is then heated with some of the coffee mucilage left on the bean. The exposure to the heat starts to breakdown the natural sugars of the coffee cherries, partially caramelizing them. This inventive process gives the coffee an exceptionally sweet and fruity flavor as well as a round and balanced cup.
Costa Rican producers are on the cutting edge of processing technology, and this Thermic “termico” processed coffee embodies the spirit of innovation. The coffee offers deep sweetness, high-toned florals, and a distinct umami undercurrent. Acidity is bright and juicy, and the cup foregrounds notes of pink grapefruit zest, raspberry yogurt and butterscotch. The body is viscous and smooth, and the finish is nuanced and flavor-packed.
