Now a little about the coffee. The cherries are soaked for 1 hour in water with hydraulic selection. Initially, the cherries are subjected to carbonic maceration for 96 hours with the must ( lactic fermentation ). The fermented cherries are developed and put into a second carbonic maceration for 96 hours with the must from the first fermentation of the cherries.
The coffee is dried in the sun on African beds for 15 days until the humidity reaches 10,5 %. Final moisture stabilization for 8 days inside the warehouse, then the coffee is finally stored on Grain Pro bags. After a final stabilisation period of 8-10 days, the coffees are cupped and batches are organised.
