Blend of two coffees sourced from Guatemala and El Salvador
If you wanna run the jewels, you better have some gas in the tank. RTJ joined forces with Dark Matter Coffee out of Chicago to bring you rocket fuel in the form of a delicious canned coffee, "The Ground Below".
"The Ground Below" is a blend of coffee beans thoughtfully sourced from Guatemala and El Salvador. The two coffee beans were processed using two all-star experimental fermentations, resulting in a super smooth brew with caramelly-sweet notes and flavors like Peach, Rolos, and Vanilla Bean.
Details on the beans from Dark Matter Coffee:
Farm: San Jeronimo Miramar
Process: Fermented with Oenococcus Oeni Bacteria
This bacteria converts malic acid, commonly found in melons, apples, and coffee cherries, into lactic acid. This process is popular in Chardonnay production, giving the wine a soft, buttery mouth-feel. In coffee it provides a pop of smooth creaminess that'll make you say "ooh la la"
Country: El Salvador
Farm: Santa Petrona
Process: Carbonic Maceration
Fresh coffee cherries are picked at the peak of ripeness and collected in a container with added carbon dioxide, forcing out any oxygen from this closed system. The intact cherries are left to ferment using the sweet fruit still on the seed and then go through the normal coffee fermentation process, adding bright, juicy fruit flavors.
