Process = Water Anaerobic Natural-All coffee goes through a fermentation process to remove the beans (seeds) from the coffee fruit (cherry). Anaerobic processed coffees go through an additional fermentation process to accentuate certain flavour characteristics. I know you may be thinking, what is the difference between Carbonic Maceration (CM) and Anaerobic Processing...great question! Both forms of processing are Anaerobic, CM processing is just a sub category. Anaerobic processing simply means part of the processing is in an oxygen free environment, it could be achieved with water, CO2 or another element from the periodic table. CM processing is Anaerobic fermentation specifically using CO2 to expel the Oxygen.  Anyway I'll stop going on a tangent and get back to explaining the unique processing of this coffee. While in Cherry form this coffee is sealed in fermentation tanks filled with water to expel oxygen from the environment. The Cherries are kept in this Anaerobic environment at ambient temperature to cleanly prolong the fermentation process, thus enhancing the flavours present in the coffee. Thereafter the Coffee Cherries are spread in thin layers on raised beds, regularly rotated for up to 7 days in a cool environment. The Cherries are then transported to a warmer environment for the remainder of the drying process. The total drying process takes roughly a month. Beans are then sorted and stored in the dried cherry pods. From there the coffee is milled and exported
