Flavour

This coffee has been through a washed process. Once the cherries are ripened for processing they are floated in water to separate the fruits. The higher the density, the higher the quality of coffee and the less mature cherries will float to the surface so they can be easily removed. They are then hand sorted, pulped and fermented for a full 24 hours. Once fermented, the coffee is washed again and left to dry on raised beds for between 12-20 days. This careful processing and dedication to quality has given this delicious coffee tasting notes of chocolate and apricot.
