Finca Tamana 158,-
This lot is from the December 2017 harvest which is the "mitaca" harvest from the farm. The mitaca harvest is much smaller than the main harvest which is normally from April until the end of July. Typically Elias will harvest around 200- 300 bags (70kg) of high quality green coffee during the main harvest whereas during the mitaca he only produces about 40 - 80 bags. Although the harvest is small, it has shown to have good quality in the cup and the December 2017 picking was no exception. You can expect this coffee to have slightly more intensity and a fruitier flavour than previous harvests.

The coffee is selectively hand picked by hired pickers under supervision of Elias. Cherries are hand sorted before they are processed to make sure only ripe cherries are processed together. After depulping the parchment coffee is rinsed in clean water. Then the water is drained and the parchment is fermented for 14 to 16 hours. After fermentation the coffee is washed in clean water that is changed 4 times. All ﬂoaters are removed during the washing. The Parchment is soaked for 24 hours in clean water before it is dried in parabolic dryers under shade from 25 - 35 days.
