The trees that yielded these coffee cherries were planted 21 years ago. These cherries were hand-picked carefully to achieve a 100% selection of the optimal ripeness point from the 21st to the 23rd of December of 2022. It was anaerobically fermented for 36 to 48 hours. Then the cherries were de-pulped and fermented for a period of 56 to 64 hours to later be de-pulped and obtain the red honey process. The coffee beans were sun-dried on raised beds for 12 to 16 days.
