Refining and fermentation are important processes that determine not only the production area and variety, but also the taste of green beans.
In today’s coffee scene, a variety of methods have been created out of the simple desire to “drink delicious coffee,” and these are distributed at fairs and markets. There are also pros and cons. We believe that “fermentation,” a technology packed with human wisdom, such as creating alcoholic beverages from grapes and rice, has the power to reborn coffee, whether it is natural or not.
Strawberry, wine, whiskey, mango, etc…Even though it was actually coffee, I somehow felt these flavors in this strange cup. Shops that sell such unique coffees gathered from all over the country. Leaving aside complicated topics such as “infused coffee” and “anaerobic”, delicious coffee that has been reborn will appear at the venue. \These two are the driving forces behind this “GOOD COFFEE FEST”! /
