Coffee details

Description:

This lot was hand-picked on February 17, 2022, after taken into consideration that it was properly mature. Then it underwent a cleaning and refloating selection in our coffee mill in Alto Lino, Boquete. Afterwards, the lot was placed in sealed tanks for 96 hours to undergo an anaerobic fermentation. Moreover, this fermentation process takes place in our controlled temperature warehouse of 18 º C.


The drying process was made in two phases. First, it was placed on African beds, exposed directly to the sun for 30 days and then placed under shadow to achieve a slower drying process. These two drying phases have been critical to achieve the intensity accomplished in this coffee.


Later, the coffee was placed in our controlled humidity and temperature warehouse for resting. 


At the time of processing the coffee, it is grinded and undergoes an extensive process of selection, according to its size, density, and morphology. Finally, all our lots undergo a last manual selection done by our skilled labor.
