Lot GN-13: Kotowa Duncan

Duncan is on the eastern slope of the Baru Volcano. This creates a special microclimate where the farm gets Pacific rain from May to Dec and also a bit of Atlantic in the month of Jan-Feb. Duncan is at 1700m, closer to the continental divide, where the temperatures can be lower than in other similar altitudes, to around 12°C at night. Duncan is in the eastern slope which is normally very sunny and dry due to the more windy Atlantic influence. Geishas on this side of the mountain tend to do well because of the drier microclimates. They have very deep root system that can absorb water even in dry conditions allowing for more concentration of sugars. This is why we can produce the deep fruit flavor at Duncan, where the dryer and more windy microclimate condenses more flavor and sugars into the beans.

For the process we then wait for very overripe stage to harvest. After harvesting, we place in the shade for 25 days, with cool dry air, where water is removed slowly, allowing for cool drying system to concentrate more in this natural process.
After drying, we place all beans in a resting facility for at least 4 months with controlled air temperature of 16°C and a relative humidity of 65% to ensure the correct environment for the resting and setting of the flavors of the drying process.
