raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

Workers collect these cherries on January 21st and rest 24 hours before they’re crushed. Almost immediately thereafter, they enter fermentation tanks with a controlled temperature ranging from 20 to 30 degrees celsius––the cherries come out with a new pH of 4.4 (slightly acidic) once they’ve soaked for three days (72 hours). Next, the beans are placed on African raised beds to slow-dry for nine days before they’re carefully hand-washed. Just before preparation, the coffee rests under the shade for one day. This entire process creates a sweet, mellow acidity with a heavy, complex body.

Cupping Notes: Sweet, heavy body, mellow acidity, and complex with a deep fruity flavor.

CBC description heavy,complex body. I would agree, maybe too fruity for me, certainly not bad, but if you're tired of coke and you reach for a Dr. Pepper, this would be Dr. Pepper.
