Coffee producers once strived to protect harvested beans from fermenting as they prepared them for shipment. Now, farmers the world over are intentionally utilising innovative controlled fermentation techniques to achieve extraordinary flavours, create more value for their products, and challenge existing narratives for quality within specialty coffee.

This event is your opportunity to sample three high-quality coffees that have all been processed with controlled fermentation methods.

Alongside, the Assembly team will present on:

  • An introduction to fermentation in coffee
  • How nascent methods are yielding divergent results and why this is useful to the producer
  • How these results are achieved with consistency and at scale
  • How fermentation is challenging stereotypical characteristics associated with the origin
  • The role of fermentation in the future of coffee.
