ABOUT THE COFFEE

Coffee begins its fermentation process by being shocked at high temperatures (around 70 degrees) for a short period of time and at high pressure in order to caramelise the sugars in the mucilage. This process takes place in heat and pressure-resistant stainless steel tanks. The mucilage (the pulp of the cherries), which is a residue of the fully washed and semi-washed processes, is collected by the pulper. It is mainly composed of sugars and pectic substances and is the basis of the fermentation process. This substance is added to the micro-lot of coffee to be fermented (in addition to its own mucilage) and it is this combination of the two (mucilage + coffee) that is heated to 70 degrees. The beans then undergo a longer (84 hours) gentler fermentation period so that these caramelised aromas penetrate the heart of the bean. The result of this process reveals very specific flavours with a very particular cinnamon profile.
