Processing: This coffee was grown by Sebastian Gomez at the farm La Divisa . This coffee was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours before being placed inside Grainpro bags for 90 hours, maintained at a temperature below 22 degrees celcius. In this environment, the bacteria feed on carbohydrates and sugars found on the mucilage leading to a higher concentration of lactic acid. Then this coffee was placed on raised beds until 11% moisture content is achieved.
This microlot is 100% Gesha. This varietal was first discovered in Abyssinia, Ethiopia in 1931. Gesha was planted in Panama for the first time in 1963 and in Colombia in 2005.
