About This Coffee
On the same day as it was picked this coffee was transported to La Praders - Cofinet's processing (washing) station. Upon arrival it was underwent a dry (low oxygen) fermentation for 48 hours - during which time dried mandarin peels and citric acid were added to the coffee.
The mandarins were then removed and the coffee dried on raised beds. Even still the coffee retains the vibrant aromatics from the mandarins combined with juicy quality from the natural fermentation - when chilled it tastes like a refreshing glass of tropical juice!
This micro-lot is composed of 100% Tabi.
