Rafael Mateus and his family have been growing co ee for over 40 years and recently Señor Mateus has been applying bene cio (specialty) processes to certain lots of trees and harvests. The process of the co ee begins with the careful picking of the cherry which then is taken to large water tanks where the oating cherries are discarded. The co ee is then depulped and moved to the fermentation tanks. The fermentation process takes 36 hours and then the co ee is fully washed before being layed out on the drying beds.
This lot is a great example of the results of the extra processes which is scoring 87+. Flavour-wise expect the malt and chocolate avours that Colombia is famous for plus layers of fruit and complexity including sugary citrus, honeydew melon and vanilla which seem to go on endlessly.
This is an extraordinary co ee and we hope you enjoy it!
