They may have a slight tobacco profile, but when we think of wet-hulled coffees, we think of average, inconsistent flavors. A very humid environment makes this method ideal. While the intense flavor of wet-hulled coffee isn’t for everyone, it makes for an interesting single-origin coffee for adventurous coffee drinkers.
