About this coffee
Unblended shared with us: "Sebastian explains that this coffee is produced using a co-fermentation process that involves wine yeast, dehydrated fruit, and fruit glucose, resulting in a distinct peach flavor profile. First, the cherries are collected and classified, and then they undergo anaerobic fermentation using wine yeast for 120 hours. Next, the de-pulped cherries are subjected to a 72-hour anaerobic fermentation with CO2 injection, followed by the addition of dehydrated fruit and fruit glucose. Throughout the process, pH levels are continuously monitored, and the coffee is dried slowly and carefully in marquesinas (roofed structure) at 40 degrees Celsius."
