ACAI: Colombia Wush Wush CM

Acai is a Wush Wush varietal produced by Sebastian Ramirez from El Placer Colombia.

It's the second coffee in our Loco Series (the first one was Smoothie), where we celebrate the crazy coffees coming out of Colombia.

We got to spend some time with Sebastian during our trip to Colombia earlier this year and this is our second year working with him. He produced this unique lot with a carbonic maceration natural process.

Tasting Notes: Acai Berry, Blackberry, Grape, Raspberry, Lavender

Cup score:  90.25 ☕ 

This coffee stood out among a table full of other loco coffees for the unique taste and aroma of acai berries! We were blown away at just how flavourful yet sweet and balanced this coffee was.

ABOUT THE WUSH WUSH VARIETAL

Similar to the more well known geisha varietal, the exotic Wush Wush varietal was also first discovered in Ethiopia, named after the coffee growing region Wushwush in Ethiopia. It was was taken to Colombia 30 years ago.

Wush Wush is a low-yield varietal that is known for its fruity and unconventionally refreshing taste profile. It's like juice!
