1. Fruit picking.
2. The whole cherries are rolled in a black plastic to ferment inside the greenhouse or solar dryer. Particular microbes resist the temperature of 40-45C fermenting each batch at a constant temperature.The exposure to the heat starts to breakdown the natural sugars of the coffee cherries, partially caramelizing them.
3. Sun dried for approximately 30 days.
4. Stored in parchment until preparation for export.
This inventive process gives the coffee an exceptionally funky, sweet and fruity flavor as well as a round and balanced cup.
