Farmer: Felipe Archila
Process: Honey | Red Berry Infused
This special red berry infused fermentation lot is sourced from producer Felipe Archila and his farm Finca La Pradera.
La Pradera is a 16 hectare estate with 12 hectares dedicated to coffee growing. The farm is located in Armenia, Quindio and sits at an altitude of 1600 Metres Above Sea Level.
This lot utilises a combination of anaerobic fermentation and the honey method. First, ripe berries are hand-selected and then undergo a 72 hour anaerobic fermentation in plastic tanks. CO2 is added to displace the oxygen, creating an anoxic environment.
After fermentation the cherries are then de-pulped and, with the mucilage still intact, dried on raised African beds. Shade is utilised to manage the temperature below 35°C until they reach the ideal humidity level.
