The Opus, Exotic & Complex
Another nod to the Scandinavian style of roasting, the Opus is expertly light. Usually floral forward, you can expect a delicate and brighter cup. Mostly staying with washed coffees, our roasting process looks to show off clarity of flavours.

Fermented in cherry overnight before being depulped, then a dry ferment for 32 hours. Seeds rinsed of remaining mucilage then onto raised, shaded beds for 20-22 days to dry.
