No matter its price point, we always thoroughly enjoy any coffee coming out of the Manos Juntas Micromill. This year’s crop brings in that classic chocolatey sweetness and bright tropical fruit acidity that we expect. We also picked up on a really smooth body reminiscent of hazelnut butter. This coffee boasts a classic honey process flavor profile and presents it in a very balanced way.
Flavor Notes: milk chocolate • hazelnut butter • kiwi
creamy • juicy
Recommended Brew Method:
drip • french press • cold brew
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.
For Honey-processed coffees, the cherries are then de-pulped and dried with the mucilage on in raised beds under shade.

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?
