Processing: This coffee was carefully hand-picked in order to use only the ripest cherries. The coffee was then exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 48 hours. Then, the coffee was pulped and placed inside Grainpro bags at 20 Degrees Celcius. In this environment, bacteria feed on the carbohydrates and sugars found in the mucilage of the bean which leads to a higher concentration of lactic acid during fermentation. Finally, the coffee was placed on raised beds to dry below 35 degrees Celsius, until ideal moisture content was achieved.
