This Geisha Anaerobic Natural lot from the Alfaro family at Finca El Cocal emphasizes the floral and fruity notes of well-cultivated Geisha.
The Alfaro family are 4 th generation coffee producers. They own Agricola San Agustin and are focused on producing high quality specialty coffee at Finca El Cocal.
The region’s volcanic soil, high elevation and ideal microclimate combine to create superb conditions for growing dense, sweet cherry. The Alfaro family capitalizes on these condition by focusing on meticulous, quality-oriented processing.
In addition to the highly coveted Geisha in this lot, they cultivate Red and Yellow Bourbon on the farm.
Ripe, red cherry is selectively handpicked and brought to Beneficio El Carmen for processing. At intake, cherry is placed in airtight containers where it ferments anaerobically for 168 hours. Different microbial activity takes place in this oxygenless environment, creating unique flavors.
Following fermentation, cherry is dried on raised beds. Cherry is turned frequently to ensure even drying. It takes an average of 28 to 30 days for cherry to dry.
