AUSTRALIAN SKYBURY SUPREME COFFEE

Australian Skybury Supreme Coffee
As low as £29.00
At Skybury Plantation, they grow Bourbon and Catuai varieties of Arabica Coffee. They have created a unique coffee wet processing which highlights the great taste of the coffee. Having one of the world's most sophisticated processing facilities, they can 'shape' the flavour of the coffee and achieve taste profile elements found in other processing styles, or create their own uniquely Australian style. With this 'Supreme' lot they have left a small amount of the mucilage on the beans by interrupting the fermentation process. Fermentation is followed by a high-speed wash which locks in flavour and allows the bean to absorb the remaining mucilage. When this coffee is roasted, the mucilage 'caramelises' and releases a sweet, chocolatey flavour. It is a light-bodied coffee and slightly lower in caffeine than average. Artisan roasted in our 2kg micro-coffee roaster.
