In the fourth Wave of Fine Coffee, teacher Han Huaizong describes the sun treatment as follows: "tanning is an ancient treatment with the oldest history by preserving the whole fruit of coffee, advocating nature, and not invading human nature." In fact, it is. Qianjie consulted a lot of data and found that in the nearly 700 years since coffee was discovered in 1400, the mode of operation of sun treatment has never been changed!

No change means that this method is still not out of date, but this does not mean that it cannot be changed! Therefore, in the prevalence of special treatment today, there are many people who dare to think and dare to act on the basis of the sun as a basis to derive a variety of novel treatment methods. For example: anaerobic sun, slow sun, wind stain sun, and so on. We can directly imagine the general process of this treatment by their names. However, it so happens that there is a treatment called "super sun", which makes people feel puzzled! "what exactly does this super sun mean? does it mean that the sun will burn harder during the treatment? or will the sun dry for longer?" Feel confused, don't you ~ it doesn't matter! Next, Qianjie will answer this special way of tanning! But before that, we need to know about the Plan of Origin, because Super Solar treatment is created and released by them!

Plan of Origin (Project Origin) may be unfamiliar to you when it comes to "Plan of Origin", but once you mention its founder "Sasa Sestic", you must be familiar with it. Yes, the brilliant "carbon dioxide impregnation treatment" in 2015 and the Suoxiang cool techs "Paragon hockey" in the previous two years were all the work of the original plan and Sasa!

In order to continuously improve the coffee industry, Sasa Sestic created the Plan of Origin. He hopes that through this project, farmers from all producing areas can establish closer ties with coffee buyers who are in the "front line", so that both sides can get their due benefits! That is, to establish a direct trade relationship and reduce the price difference earned by the middleman. The super sun is a way to deal with the birth of the plan of origin in the process of operation.

What is super tanning treatment? According to the official website of the Plan of Origin, Super Solar (Supernatural) combines traditional and modern innovative treatments, combining new fermentation and drying-related technologies. Moreover, the processing flow in this way is not fixed. Since each bean in each producing area has different characteristics, after deciding to apply super sun to them, they will choose two or more ways to treat them according to their own conditions, so that coffee beans can develop their own special flavor: ① speeds up the fermentation rate by raising the temperature.

② prolongs the fermentation time by lowering the temperature.

③ uses an elevated bed to stack fruit thickness for drying.

④ reduces the drying time so that fruits with low water content can be dried correctly.

⑤ wraps the coffee fruit to ensure its water content and calories.

So we can know that due to the different producing areas and bean species, their corresponding super sun treatment methods are also different. And this is exactly what the Origin Planning team wants! So that different producing areas, varieties can get different characteristics of flavor, rather than roughly the same taste. The traditional sun treatment is to lay out the ripe coffee fruit to dry, and the peeling can be carried out when the water content of the coffee bean is reduced to about 11%. The more commonly used super sun will first seal the ripe coffee fruit in a bag and place it for a short period of time for a short period of time to ferment!

(this Grainpro bag) this operation will allow the coffee to develop a red, dark berry flavor, and because the fermentation time is not long, the fermentation feeling is not too obvious. After this small period of static fermentation is completed, the coffee beans will be "handed over" to a high drying bed to start the regular sun treatment process! When the water content of the coffee fruit is dried to the target, it can be shelled and stored! The super sun-treated coffee not only has its own characteristic flavor, but also has a very round berry flavor, the sweetness is very prominent, the level is obvious! The performance in the taste is also mellow. The key is that its sense of fermentation is not as heavy as other features, and it simply doesn't have to be too pleasing.
