This particular offering was first purchased in its cherry form when delivered to the mill by eight local producers, on the day of harvest. Upon arrival, the Brix and pH were recorded, and the cherries were placed in large hermetic tanks for a five-daylong anaerobic fermentation: Each tank was labeled with the name of the producer to retain traceability. During this period, nitrogen gas was introduced into the tanks in order to stimulate the yeast. Brix and pH were measured constantly throughout this process and were used to determine the stopping point for fermentation; the coffee was then subjected to 20°C temperatures in order to cease fermentation and remove the yeast and other microorganisms. The cherries were then aged in tanks for a period of five more days before they were taken to solar dryers. Drying took approximately 30 – 45 days.

A great deal of love, passion and hard work has been weaved into the process of developing this beautiful coffee for you. It is your appreciation for the experience that inspires each member of the value chain to work harder, better and with creativity. We thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy this coffee.
