  • Raspberry and tropical fruit in the fragrance with an aroma of strawberry mochi and candied fruit. Intense tropical flavors of blueberry, banana, coconut and other tropical fruits. The aftertaste is like raw honey or maple syrup with a bright acidity that shows notes of pineapple and fresh yogurt. The body is heavy with a syrupy mouthfeel.
  • With so much fruit jumping out, we recommend keeping this coffee roasted light to preserve all of the crazy nuance in the cup. Like many anaerobic naturals, we find that a gentle approach with heat during roasting can benefit the final cup.

Throughout the 7 days, the fermentation tanks were placed in concrete water baths to maintain constant temperatures between 15 and 18 degrees Celsius and to keep the fermentation very slow. The fermentation process was homogenized by rotating or moving the tanks. 

At the end of the seventh day, the fermentation was suspended by taking out the cherries from the tanks. On the first day out of tanks, a quick drying is applied until the coffee humidity drops to 35%. Cherries were then dried for 30 days under shade on African beds. Once the drying period is completed and the humidity decreased to 12%, cherries were collected and stored in a conducive warehouse for four weeks of resting time before final milling and sorting. 

The Gara Agena washing station is owned and operated by the Yonis family. We have had the pleasure of working with Faysel since 2015, and the coffee never disappoints!
