Maurico Shattah is one of the most innovative coffee producers in the world. Before moving into the coffee industry just six years ago, Mauricio worked as a physician. That medical background is evident in his scientific approach to coffee production - by understanding of how coffee flavor develops at the biological level, Mauricio is able to produce some of the finest coffee in the world. Favored by award-winning baristas, the Shattah Gesha won first prize at the 2018 UK Barista Championship.

This lot was made using a new technique known as the natural anaerobic process. In this method, coffee cherries are sanitized and pre-soaked in yeast to prevent any bacteria from developing. This allows the coffee to safely develop its inherent unique and vibrant flavors. The end cup is incredibly sweet, featuring notes of deep black cherry, apricot jam, and stewed raspberry.
