Processing ‘Thermic

Manual Harvesting of cheries.
Cerries are 'floated' before processing to remove any defective fruits.
The fruits are fermented in a stainless steel tank for 24 hours, folowed by 18 hours of drying in a 'solar dry'
The temperature is controlled by PH measurements.
The tanks are airtight and he bsence of oxygen simulates a thermic fermentaton process. The process develops in a unique series of acids such as lactc and malic, which translate to a complexity in flavor.
Once ready, the coffee is 100% sundried.
