among the most respected farmers inthe
Alta Mogiana region. They are known for
taking new approaches and using new technologies
to create truly unique coffee.
are harvested by both hand and machine,
with a portion of the harvest processed
using natural controlled fermentation.
These select cherries are arranged in
thick piles (so they can begin to ferment)
at night, the piles are coverd with large
blankets to keep in their moisture. For
several days, the humidity and temperature
of the cherries is very carefully monitored
as the fermentation continues. They the
piles are spread out to thinner layers
so that the fermentation coninues, but
at a slower rate for a few more days.
After a week or so, the coffee beans are
then dried out on patios until the precise
moisture level is achieved.
The result is simply
amazing; sweet, smooth heavenly body,
and uniform flavor in the cup. This coffee
is excellent for all types of brewinng
including espresso, pour-over, drip, and
unless otherwise specified.
