PROCESS: WASHED THROUGH STAGED FERMENTATION
NOTES: BROWN SUGAR, ORANGE, APPLE
Finca Florestales is one of a group of farms owned by the Gutierrez family members. Maximo grows Yellow Caturra and Gesha on the farms and applies many of the same innovative process techniques as the neighbouring Gutierrez farm, Monteverde. This washed coffee used no water, rather Maximino fermented it in two stages: Once in cherry and again when pulped. This technique saves water and can even improve the coffee quality.
