We have featured a number of coffees from this farm in the past seasons. Now, we will experience the prominent fruitiness brought upon by the inoculated process, plus a sugarcane decaffeination, for the coffee lovers who may be sensitive to caffeine!
The coffee first goes through a controlled anaerobic fermentation phase (62hr) by adding a specific yeast. Then oxygen is re-introduced for 4 hours of a controlled acetic fermentation phase. They are then dried in a controlled environment for 88 hours, until the beans reach 10.5% humidity.
