About this product

The cherries are meticulously hand-picked at the highest level of maturation, observed using a refractometer, and measuring around 25 Brix. With this methodology, the family Gutierrez have trained the seasonal pickers to pick the ripest cherries. This particular coffee undergoes a two-stage fermentation. The first stage is a 72-hour controlled temperature anaerobic fermentation, which sits between 19 and 23 degrees Celsius. Stage two is a 48-hour controlled temperature and pH aerobic fermentation.
similar techniques for their production. Once the fermentation step is complete, the coffee is sun-dried in greenhouses, on African raised beds. During this process, airflow is adapted to control the relative humidity inside the greenhouse and the temperature at which the coffee is dried. This temperature never goes above 37 degrees Celsius. The drying process takes around 25 days, and once the coffee reaches 11% humidity, it is packed in GrainPro, and vacuum sealed in 30kg bricks.
