Description

Manos Juntas is a micromill in Sotara area of Colombia’s Cauca region, operated and managed by our exporting partners at Banexport. The entire concept of this micromill is based on simplifying tasks and responsibilities, for both producers and Banexport.

This particular offering was first purchased in its cherry form when delivered to the mill by eight local producers, on the day of harvest. Upon arrival, the Brix and pH were recorded, and the cherries are placed in large hermetic tanks for a five-day-long anaerobic fermentation. After this, the cherries are taken to raised beds under a parabolic dryer to begin their 30-day process of slowly drying.

 

Here is a breakdown of the processing steps:

1. Coffee is anaerobically fermented in sealed tanks for 5 days in-cherry

2. Tanks are opened, Brix is tested again, and once the fermentation process is deemed “complete”, the barrels are moved to a cool, clean area where they are “aged” in the barrels for an average of 10 days.

3. After the fermentation and aging period, coffee is transferred to raised african beds where it is dried for an average of 30 days, moved multiple times a day to ensure even drying.

4. Once dried, the coffee is cupped, approved, milled, and shipped.

 

*This is a natural / dry processed coffee
