Special Farming Practices
Red Bomb is the result of a collaboration between Proyecto Renacer and Finca Las Brisas. It all started when Proyecto Renacer developed the special process of fermentation to create Red Bomb, the problem is that they didn´t have at the time the capacity to fully produced this new product, and the result? Finca Las Brisas. The farm had the capacity and the willingness to produce this fantastic coffee. Thus, Red Bomb is the outcome of coffeepreneurs that wanted to innovate in the fermentation processes.

Cacao + Berries = Red Bomb
In Proyecto Renacer we have a few main fermentation protocols including Red Bomb. Red Bomb is a washed double fermented coffee developed by Jonathan and Cristian Raigosa were, in brief, after selectively harvesting the cherries ferment, and then are depulped and put in a tank to undergo the anaerobic fermentation for 120 hours total between cherry and honey! Then they begin the washing process and dry on African beds. The name Red Bomb is given after the berries and cacao nib notes that give you a fruity and aromatic aftertaste.
