What Makes Bergamo Coffee So Popular?
There’s no coincidence between the popularity of our Bergamo coffee and the process of getting the amazing flavours to your cup.
So we thought we’d share more details about what’s in your Bergamo coffee pouch from Woodhouse Coffee Co.
Bergamo originates from the Antioquia and Huila departments of Columbia. For aficionados, the varietals are Colombia, Caturra, Castillo and Typica. The cherries are grown at elevations between 1,100m and 1,900m above sea level and when ripe, are subjected to an initial flotation sorting, to remove underripe, sticks and debris before passing through a pulping machine and working their way down washing channels to the fermentation tanks.
The coffee cherries are fermented for up to 14 hours before moving to guardiolas (drying patios) for controlled drying to 10-12% moisture.
The beans are stored in parchment and bagged in dry mills for export to us.
Bergamo is a medium roast coffee, with a lovely bright acidity, packed full of chocolate and berry flavours in your cup. These are probably the reasons why Bergamo coffee is so popular.
