Sipi Washed

Sipi Washed

 

At Commonfolk, Sipi is the place where we get the crazy fermentations and natural experiments from: loud, unconventional and dominating. It is also where some of the highest quality washed coffee is produced, each year better than the previous. The washed coffee in Sipi wasn’t top priority early on, infrastructure for a well mill was expensive and the demand for natural coffee justified all of the coffee it could supply. In 2022, Zukuka Bora purchased some land to set up a permanent buying station, meaning it now had scope to buy more coffee, enough to process washed coffee and still fulfil the natural requirements. The coffee is pulped to remove the flesh before being fully submerged in the tanks of fresh water to ferment for up to 48 hours. This process removes the sugar and other material, leaving a clean seed wrapped in a paper like skin to be dried on raised beds to a safe point where the coffee is safe from mould. The washed coffee from Sipi tastes like dried mango and butterscotch, with the sweet floral aroma of cascara. The cherry farmers produce in the Sipi region is incredible, and the washed process shows the incredible care and quality. Sipi is more than just hype coffees, it is a place of outstanding quality, no matter which process it may be.
