This is an anaerobic processed coffee. Coffee processing is more of a spectrum now. This microlot was exposed an extended dry fermentation of 55 hours (the coffee cherries are placed in steel tanks under 18 degrees celcius) before pulped and 90 additional hours after pulped (this is done inside 200 liters plastic tanks under 18 degrees celicius). The coffee is then later dried on raised beds to ideal moisture content.

It is far from your typical coffee. it is very intense and boozy, but it not really like a natural processed coffee. It still has an acidity profile, just a lot of unusual enzymatic flavours that are not in traditional faster aerobic fermentations.
