We have two versions of this coffee. The natural processed one, and this one - the washed pro- cessed. Here’s how the processing of the coffee cherries goes for this coffee from Ayla, Sidamo. First thing, 85% well ripe and 15% semi ripe cherries are selected. The cherries immerse in water tanks to remove the floaters, and are then fermented for 96 hours. Fermentation for four days is new to the Ayla washing station, that fermented the coffee for five days before. Once the fermentation is completed, the beans then rest on raised African beds under a parabolic shade net for 15 days. This gives the coffee a very complex flavor. We hope you get to try both the washed and natural version of this coffee.
