Java is one of the cultivars that really creates more complex flavors with the more hours the batch last drying. That's why this lot was dry only in the parabolic at La Esperanza farm and took 30 days to reach the ideal moisture percentage

These Geisha cherries have gone through a natural anaerobic fermentation. Placed in a stainless-steel fermentation tank equipped with an airlock valve, this system allows oxygen to escape the tank but stops anything from getting inside.

The process starts with harvesting perfectly ripe Geisha cherries, reading 21-24 on BRIX. Cherries are then carefully selected for a second time before processing.

Next, the pulped coffee is tanked for an extended period of time with constant monitoring and cataloging of PH, temperature, and CO2 levels. After the required time inside the CO2-infused tanks, the coffee is removed and placed on shaded, raised, African beds. Direct sunlight is avoided as the intense UV and heat can cause cracking in parchment. Temperatures, heat, and humidity are controlled inside the dry houses and carefully maintained

Once your order is received, it will be processed and shipped in 1-3 days.
