Process = Carbonic Maceration Natural Jasper-All coffee goes through a fermentation process to remove the beans (seeds) from the coffee fruit (cherry). Historically speaking Carbonic Maceration an anaerobic fermentation processed used to create vibrant, fruity, light, red wines. CM processed coffees go through an additional fermentation process to accentuate certain flavour characteristics. These cherries are hand picked and sorted, so only ripe cherries make it to the fermentation stage. These ripe coffee cherries are placed in the airtight tanks still in whole cherries for 2-3 days, during this time the tanks are filled with with CO2 which in turn expels Oxygen from the tank. While the cherries are fermenting in these anaerobic tanks the temperature and humidity levels are monitored to enhance the tropical fruit qualities. Once the CM process is complete, the coffee cherries are spread in thin layers on drying beds for an additional 20 days being turned/moved regularly to allow even exposure. Then to coffee moves to the dry mill for the final stages of processing before export
