Process: Special 120 hours experimental double fermentation:
The coffee cherry starts a 48 hour fermentation before pulping in anaerobic condition, which starts to generate an environment in which the bean starts eating up the cherries' sugars. It also can be interpreted as a preparation stage in which we let the cherries get used to a new environment without stress. Then it goes into pulping and has a normal washed process. After pulping it goes into a 72 Hr fermentation that is trascendental for the bean to develop all its fruitiness and. mature flavors. The first fermentation is done to complete the sweetness of the cup and the second one is done to process the remaining sugar and transform it into a bomb of flavors and acidity. The coffee is then dry on Marquesinas bed. - Ave Cafes
Initial Tasting Notes: lots of berries and tropical - blueberry, raspberry, mango, lychee, peach, apple, sour plum, myer lemon, cocoa, hint of basil - full body but light long finished - complex and very enjoyable
Brewing tasting notes: Lots of berries and peaches. The cocoa is folded into a sort of chocolate + milk tea. The citrus is tamed into a sweet tangerine.
This coffee is best enjoyed between 5-60 days after roast date.
