Process = Carbonic Maceration Washed Indigo-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, yeast activity and humidity levels are monitored to enhance the inherit flavour characteristics of a classic Washed Kenya coffee in a gentle and delicate manner. Once the CM process is complete, the Double Washed fermentation process begins. Coffee cherries are placed in tanks to ferment for 24-40 hours before being pulped. The coffee then goes a further 60-65 hours of fermentation before being washed, this results in a extremely clean crisp flavour with a medium body/mouthfeel Then to coffee is dried for about two weeks to reach the required moisture level of 10-12% then stored in parchment ready for export.
