Carbonic Natural Process
Ripe coffee cherries are placed inside stainless steel containers along with clean water. Atmospheric gases are displaced by injecting carbon dioxide into the tanks. In this CO2 rich environment, fermentation begins intracellularly by the action of enzymes, rather than yeast or other microbes. The internal temperature of the tanks is lowered to 50°F to extend the total fermentation time to 90 hours. The cherries are then moved to raised beds, placed one layer thick, and rotated by hand every few hours for the first 5 days of drying. After 36-40 days, drying is complete.
This carbonic processing results in a coffee with floral aromatics of rose and pink flowers. Fruity fragrances of dark cherry and citrus zest carry into the cup, sweetened by the impression of strawberry candy and confectioners' sugar. The creamy body is lightened by a winey acidity that carries into a bergamot tea-like aftertaste.
