This coffee was experimented with a Koji fungus (Aspergillus oryzae), used traditionally in Japanese Sake brewing, which breaks down more complex sugars into fermentable sugars, creating amino acids, glutamates, esters and aldehydes, enhancing weight, mouthfeel, fruity aromas, and sweetness. This coffee is super juicy and sweet, resembling a lychee slush on a summer day!
