Wild Bat Coffee, Costa Rica

Wild Bat Coffee has a remarkably fruity and floral taste with a very delicate acidity. The Wild Artibeus Jamaicensis bat species emerge from the forests surrounding the Coffea Diversa Garden, using their acute sense of smell to identify the ripest cherries from amongst the incredible cornucopia of coffee on offer. We would highly recommend brewing this coffee through a V60 Decanter to appreciate its fruity appeal.

Additional Info

The bats feed on the coffee cherries, breaking the skin of the ripe cherry with their teeth, feeding on the cherry pulp and licking the sugar-rich mucilage. The remains of the cherry are left turned almost inside out and the bats natural digestive acid combined with the sun begin a metamorphosis in the beans structure, whilst it is still on the plant. Harvested by hand the sun drying process is then carefully completed.
