Details:

60 Hour Anaerobic Fermentation With Tangerines - We have 4 fermentation tanks at the farm where we undergo our experimental micro lots. The coffee cherries first pass through our grater to remove the cherry skin from the coffee cherry and allow 70% of the mucilage to remain covering the seed with a golden/yellow complexion. The coffee is then placed in fresh water tanks immediately after grating for 60 hours. The coffee is rotated by hand 3 times a day and regulated with cool fresh water to maintain stable temperature conditions during the fermentation period. Following the fermentation period in the tanks, the coffee is then placed to dry on the raised drying beds for 24 days and is raked and rotated 6 times daily for consistent exposure and airflow.

PARA ELA

We are excited to announce our exclusive special limited reserve “Para Ela” micro-lots, that are 100% women selected. These coffees are very near and dear to our hearts because they were carefully selected and sorted with love by the women of Our Coffees.

“Para Ela”, which translates "For Her" is our representation to the world of what we can achieve through the power of coffee. During the 4 month hand selection and sorting season, to financially empower the women of Campos Altos and shine a light on the financial disparity occurring in the country, we decided to take action and dedicate the entire hand selection and micro lot production to be harvested only by women. During the hand selection season, our pickers earned 50% higher wages than the regional average, and employee household incomes increased by 85% during the picking season as a direct result of the Para Elas production. The ripest and most pristine cherries were carefully hand selected and sorted with love exclusively and only by the women of Campos Altos.

This lot is a showcase of our natural processed Red Bourbon dried on our newly built African raised drying beds. The goal behind this collection was to cultivate and process a coffee that not only preserved the prestige of this varietal, but excite roasters with its flavor dynamic and full body component to excel as a single origin espresso or filter coffee.
