Coffee processing techniques have become more unique and complex and their flavors have followed suit. This new anaerobic Colombian is a perfect example of that trend. The aroma from the dried grounds exudes notes of strong berry-like fruit. Once brewed the coffee aroma turns to a more savory note that you would expect from a Pacamara. Finally, the taste - the floral delicacy with a nice smooth finish takes you to the perfect place of relaxation, but the fruit that the dried grounds exhibited are still clearly there, more bright in the cup, like a fresh crisp sweet apple or a juicy pea
Flavor Notes: sweet berry • jasmine • wine acidity
Recommended Brew Method:
aeropress • pour over
Manos Juntas is a micromill in Sotara area of Colombia's Cauca region, operated and managed by our exporting partners at Banexport. The entire concept of this micromill is based on simplifying tasks and responsibilities, for both producers and Banexport.
This particular offering was first purchased in its cherry form when delivered to the mill by eight local producers, on the day of harvest. Upon arrival, the Brix and pH were recorded, and the cherries are placed in large hermetic tanks for a five-day-long anaerobic fermentation: Each tank is labeled with the name of the producer, to retain traceability. During this period, nitrogen gas is introduced into the tanks in order to stimulate the yeast. Brix and pH are measured constantly through this process and are used to determine the stopping point for fermentation; the coffee is then subjected to 20°C temperatures in order to cease fermentation and remove the yeast and other microorganisms. The cherry is then "aged" in tanks for a period of five more days before they are taken to solar dryers. Drying takes 30–45 days.

I'm sure that you've seen notes on our website about how 'We don't roast until you want it." or "Roasted Fresh After You Order", but have you thought about why and how we setup our business to do that?
