GEMS #7 Guest Roaster:
SUMO from Ireland

Description

Our seventh GEMS edition will see us teaming up with the 2019 World Coffee Tasters Champion Daniel Horbat whose boutique coffee roasting business SUMO is based in Dublin.

Daniel originally hails from Romania where his fascination with sumo wrestling began. Years later, after spending some time living and working in Santorini, he settled in Ireland to ‘escape the heat’. This is where he launched his carreer in specialty coffee, which shortly after led him towards competing. In 2019, he won the World Coffee Tasters Championship.

During the pandemic, he founded SUMO, a roasting business with a strong focus on very high scoring coffees. He named his business SUMO because the Japanese sport of the same name is not just about being big and strong. It’s also about discipline, sacrifice and intelligence. All of these traits also apply to coffee.

Through the coffees he selects, he wants to showcase the fantastic work of the farmers and offer everyday people an opportunity to taste the unexpected, like the gorgeous Pink Bourbon from El Paraiso in Colombia that we picked for the 7th GEMS instalment.

Diego Bermudez, the farmer behind this celebrated coffee farm, is a science guru who has developed a unique approach to coffee processing. He strongly believes that by controlling every aspect of the post-harvest process, you can achieve an unrivalled level of consistency, clarity and flavour. This has earned him many plaudits from coffee roasters across the world who hugely value his detail-oriented mindset.

This beautiful coffee was processed using the ‘thermal shock’ process. This means that the coffee was washed with filtered water at different temperatures; 40ºC and 12ºC. This has the effect of leading to better absorbtion of the flavours into the beans. Expect a rich cup with notes of strawberry cake, lemon and cream.
