What we have here is a Carbonic Marcerated Natural. The cherries used for this lot is of the S795 and Kartika variety. The cherries is first sorted in a floating tank, sorted and clean. Only the red cherries is used and selected for this process. These cherries are fermented as whole fruit with a specific time interval. Filtered CO2 gas is pumped into the tank to remove any oxygen in the tank to initiate the carbonic fermentation. The cherries is fermented for 80 hours in total.
The dry aroma is mango & pineapple. At first sip, pineapple and dried mango. As the coffee began to cools down, a blood orange flavour is the key highlight of the flavour with mild floral aroma mouthfeel. The coffee is rich in flavour, sweet with a long mouthfeel
