Costa Rica Hacienda Limonal Filter
For processing this Natural Patalillo floats all the coffee followed by tank fermentation for 12 hrs. While fermenting, the greenhouses are allowed to become very hot with low humidity, at which point the coffee is moved inside. The idea of transitioning the cherries into this pre-warmed environment is to cause a thermal shock, stopping any microbial activity that may be present and could cause spoilage. The beds are turned every hour for the first 2 days to minimise sweating and mould, turning less frequently as the moisture levels drop. The coffee is almost entirely sun dried (95%) however the last 5% is completed in mechanical driers to standardize the finish to all the lots.
This Marsellesa varietal with its meticulous natural process has created a very complex taste profile and elegant structure, full of fruit characteristics and sweetness.
Filter roast. Suitable for pour over, Aeropress, drip machines and plunger.
