Red bomb, named after its red round fruity taste, is washed coffee that tastes like a sweet natural process. Christian from Renacer created this coffee by doubly fermenting the cherries. First they let the cherries ferment in open tanks for 120 hr, then they depulped and ferment for another 50 hrs and then finally it is washed. This allows the beans to interact with the yeast and lacto bacteria produced during the fermentation process and gather some of the sweetness from the cherry into the bean. This wonderful coffee has notes of red apple and papaya and we're proud to share with you this second creation from Renacer.

"To be re-born" - The meaning of Proyecto Renacer. This micro-processing facility, located in the outskirts of Medellin, Colombia, at the heart of Barrio La Sierra, is an illustration of the power of hope. Beginning initially with only one producer, Gabriel Cortez, the project now works with over 15 families in the neighborhood -- teaching the sons and daughters of these traditional coffee producers the art and science behind processing coffee. Through specialty coffee, Cristian and Jhonatan have managed to build strong bonds within a neighborhood with a long history of conflict and violence and have shown the youth in this community the world of possibilities that come with hard work, dedication, and innovation.
