Coffee producers of are constantly looking to improve the quality of coffee by including new techniques and experimental processes. This coffee follows an addition to the conventional natural drying process. Cherries are harvested at 24-26 Brix, sorted and packed in GrainPro bags to be placed in a refrigerator at 12C for 50 hours. Furthermore, cherries are removed from the refrigerator and left to rest for 10 hours and placed on raised beds for primary drying of 5 days. A prolonged drying on shaded raised beds is initiated for up to 30 days.
This lot is arranged by Coffea Circulor's friend Eugene P. Altieri with family.
