Guatemala Santa Clara (Geisha Natural)
ABOUT THE BEAN
Intensely fruit forward and floral, with sugarcane and lingering cherry blossom. Complex and distinct.
This micro-lot is a Geisha variety from Santa Clara Estate, in Antigua run by the Zelaya family who has been growing coffee for over 100 years. Every cherry is selectively hand-picked, sorted then inspected and approved by the foreman at the wet mill. Then placed in sealed Ecotact bags and taken to the mill, oxygen is removed from the bags and cherries undergo anaerobic fermentation for 14-20 hours. Next they are depulped, washed and dried slowly and evenly on the patio and then on raised beds, with a greenhouse-style enclosed canopy.
