Termico (Thermic) Coffee Processing
Washed process, natural process, honey process I’ve heard of. Even anaerobic process. But thermic process? What is that?
The Termico process is a new, experimental coffee process invented by don Luis Campos of Cordillera de Fuego. The process enhances the natural sweetness and fruit flavors of the coffee. The process starts by selecting the cherries when they are at their ripest allowing them to have a high sugar content and thus feeding the Termico process. The semi-washed coffee is then heated with some of the coffee mucilage left on the bean. The exposure to the heat starts to breakdown the natural sugars of the coffee cherries, partially caramelizing them. This inventive process gives the coffee an exceptionally sweet and fruity flavor as well as a round and balanced cup.
