Tasting Notes: dark chocolate and tangerine
Our Anaerobico Cordillera del Fuego comes from producer Luis Eduardo Campos, a Costa Rican coffee farmer who is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to improve his coffee production. The flavors and attributes in this coffee can be attributed to its special anaerobic processing method.
The process starts with the selection of handpicked, mature coffee cherries that have a Brix degree (a measurement of sugar content) near 26. The coffee is depulped and put in stainless steel with all its mucilage, which, in the absence of CO2, purposely creates an anaerobic fermentation process. The coffee develops in a unique series of acids such as lactic and malic which will translate to a very complex flavor. Once ready the coffee is 100% sun dried. [Genuine Origin]
