About the Coffee
The processing is a ‘washed-process’. In this type of processing, the pulp is separated from the coffee cherries immediately after harvesting using a ‘pulper’. In this mechanical pulping process, a pulper residue always remains attached to the coffee beans. The hulled coffee beans are now processed wet: They are placed in a large basin filled with water, where they rest for 24 hours. The slightly softened coffee cherries are then placed in a tank where they rest for 38 hours to intensify their flavor.
This washing process ensures that the coffee has a clean, round taste. The flavor is underscored by full-bodied notes of aromatic hazelnut, brown sugar and melting nougat.
