The selection is Red Bourbon, which means the coffee has a more consistent size and is more pleasant to roast. After pulping, the coffee is fermented for around 72 hours in a controlled environnement and then is passed to the washing process that removes the mucilage. After this it goes to the patios and its dried for around 15 days.
The way they ferment this coffee creates a more sweet and complex cup profile.
