Water-Washing for Digestive Comfort
In the heart of San Rafael, CA, an innovative coffee company is reaching for the stars, not just metaphorically. With its whimsical blend of interstellar themes and earthly flavors, Coffee on Mars invites patrons to embark on a cosmic journey with every sip. This isn’t just any ordinary coffee, though. Harvested from the meticulous care of a single-family, women-owned farm in San Ignacio, Cajamarca, Peru, these beans undergo a unique water-washing process that promises various health benefits.
The Art of Water-Washing
Before we delve into its myriad benefits, it’s crucial to understand what the water-washing method involves. Traditionally, the coffee cherry’s mucilage is manually removed, often allowing beans to ferment in their juices. However, water-washing stands distinct:
- Process: The beans are doused in water, removing the mucilage, and prepped for drying.
- Taste: Leads to cleaner, vibrant flavors in the coffee.
- Benefit: It often reduces acidity and possible contaminants, setting the stage for various health benefits.
A Symphony of Flavors: Cleaner and More Vibrant
With its custom medium-dark beans boasting flavors ranging from dark rich chocolate to tobacco, Coffee on Mars uses the water-washing method. This technique produces a cleaner flavor profile, ensuring the sensory experience remains undiluted. The flavors derived from the Bourbon, Catimor, Caturra, Pache, and Typica varieties are enhanced, giving the drinker an almost celestial experience.
Digestive Comfort: Easing the Process
The human digestive system can be sensitive, and our food and beverages play a pivotal role in our overall health. Coffee processed through water-washing might be easier on digestion. With decreased acidity and potential mycotoxins, nutrient absorption in the digestive system might improve, ensuring that the body extracts maximum nutrients from every sip.
Lower Mycotoxin Content: Safety First
Mycotoxins are harmful compounds that can develop during the drying process of the beans. With the water-washing method:
- The risk of ingesting these toxic compounds is reduced.
- The drying process, especially when sun-dried, as with Coffee on Mars, ensures minimal mycotoxin content.
- Consumers can relish their coffee, knowing it’s tasty and safer.
Coffee on Mars, with its blend of Bourbon, Catimor, Caturra, Pache, and Typica varieties, is a testament to how traditional methods can be revamped for contemporary times. While ensuring a tantalizing taste profile, the water-washing process also addresses health concerns that many coffee lovers might have.
As the beans dance under the sun, free from chemicals, they soak in nature’s goodness and promise a brew that is kinder to the body, especially the digestive system. Whether it’s the assurance of lower acidity, reduced mycotoxin content, or the promise of digestive comfort, Coffee on Mars has intricately woven health and taste in its aromatic embrace. For those in San Rafael and beyond, this offers a unique opportunity to traverse the universe of flavors while ensuring that their health remains grounded.
