Following the popularity of our Honey Process, we're still on a fermentation kick here at Tug Hill Artisan Roasters! This month, we're releasing a coffee fermented with a yeast specifically developed for coffee.
In the intro to Sandor Ellix Katz's book The Art of Fermentation, Michael Polland writes, "To ferment your food is to lodge the eloquent protest – of the senses – against the homogenization of flavors and food experiences now rolling like a great, undifferentiated lawn across the globe."
The continued exploration of post-harvest processes has led roasters to develop coffee fermentation methods further, discovering that fermentation refines the coffee's sweetness, body, and acidity and often adds a fruity note. Coffee processors initially used wild fermentation and then advanced to "wine yeast," specialized strains created to enhance grape fermentation. Now, coffee processors are beginning to use strains of yeast specifically developed for coffee! An exciting next step in realizing the full potential of coffee.
Who knew protesting the McDonaldization of the world, the commercial sameness that dominates food processing could be so fun and tasty!
Finally, I (Scott) have to mention that the Kayanza region is one of my favorite coffee-producing regions globally. I'm a big fan of the areas around Lake Kivu, one of Africa's great lakes that has a rich culture built around it. This coffee varietal was purchased from several smallholders, so exact scientific details are unknown, typical of Burundi-sourced coffee.
