Getting product details...

From Casa Espresso:

We have chosen this washed coffee together with the Natural from the same mill.

The pulped cherries are soaked for 36-48 hours with one water change, then patio dried for 5-6 days and finished in a mechanical dryer for 12 hours.

Based in Santa Rosa, south east of Guatemala, the coffee is produced by Cooperativa El Porvenir R.L. The co-operative includes 28 small farms. Olam Specialty who is the importer, works directly with the farmers, and rents this mill for a number of years to boost the quality of production from this area. They have installed new equipment, and oversee the specialty preparations.
