Magic Beans

Refresh your daily grind with this extraordinarily smooth and refined fermented coffee. While some coffee on the market is naturally fermented through a wet washing process, these beans undergo a secondary, controlled fermentation that virtually eliminates bitterness and tummy-taxing acidity. This unique process produces beans with delightfully chocolaty, fruity, and floral notes—an animal-friendly equivalent to Kopi Luwak, the prized civet coffee from southeast Asia. Beans sourced from Tanzania; fermented and roasted by hand by Camille Delebecque and Sophie Deterre in Brooklyn.

Camille Delebecque and Sophie Deterre believe that answers to our most pressing issues around food sustainability, security, and quality can be found in nature. They thought of the idea for their fermented coffee after travelling to Southeast Asia and learning about Kopi Luwak. Although it is highly prized and pricey, production of Kopi Luwak is often inhumane and results in a disappointing brew. Inspired by the powerful biodiversity of the microorganisms they study, Camille and Sophie want to bring that inspiration to your home or office coffee break.

Camille has a Ph.D. in Synthetic Biology completed between Harvard and Paris Universities. A bioengineer by training and a serial entrepreneur, he is a biotechnology advisor for the European Commission, and his research has been published in Science. Sophie is a food and flavor science expert. During her Ph.D. at the AgroParisTech institute, she transformed a signature liqueur's hundreds of years of craft into predictable and reproducible science, which facilitated the opening of a new multi-million dollar distillery. She is a food process engineer by training and has many years of industry experience, including with USDA and the Parmesan cheese alliance.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Fermented Coffee:

    This product is very unique. You can definitely taste a difference from the fermentation. It's got a smooth sourness that's very different from the dark-roasted, nutty flavors I usually go for in coffee. I liked it, but not enough to buy again, given the price point. I got about three small pots of coffee out of it -- so about $10 per pot -- which isn't worth it for me.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Fermented Coffee:

      I really really liked this coffee! Very smooth taste and easy on my sensitive stomach. I shared it with a few friends, and they all loved it.

      I also like the glass bottle packaging. Most food comes in plastic packaging which can leak toxic chemicals, but not this coffee.

      Overall, super happy with this healthier/tastier alternative to traditional coffee. I'm buying again!
