The coffee cherries are harvested at their peak ripeness, after that they are floated in water tanks to take out impurities like sticks, leaves, bitten & unripe cherries. After that the fermentation starts dry – aerobic oxidation – and then gets step-by-step submerged in water under temperature control. Twice a day the coffee mass is stirred to homogenize the fermentation & oxidation process. Afterwards the coffee is dried during 29 days with interruptions to stabilize water activity.

Fermentation: 180 hours; begins aerobic and when the coffee mass reaches up to 95°F it’s cooled down with spring water showers, and step by step it gets submerged. The coffee is then dried for 29 days at 60.8 °F - 95°F, with interruptions at days 13, 19 & 26.

Process: Yellow natural (yellow refers to the green coffee color)

This will be a delight for any specialty coffee lover!

The Coffee Review

Crisply sweet-savory, deep-toned. Concord grape, baking spices, dark chocolate, tea rose, the scent of balsa wood in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with brisk acidity; very full, viscous mouthfeel. Crisp, sweetly wood-framed finish with undertones of baking spices.
