Inspired on the traditional african method of processing coffee, the cherries are spread in a patio for solar drying, without previously removing the pulp that surrounds the bean. Over a slow drying process which takes up to 3 weeks, the beans absorb traces of the alcohols and sugars that make up the fruit of the cherry. The result is a coffee which will conquer the taste buds of those who crave exotic, sweet flavours. Our Naturals offer unique blueberry and chocolate notes, within a very complex body and fine acidity.LEARN MORE
