Process

Natural

Natural: In Natural process, cherries are selectively picked for ripeness, the cherries are immediately left to dry on patios or raised beds with frequent turning or raking. This process can take up to several weeks until the cherries have reached the optimal moisture level (10-12%). the fruit acts as a natural casing, fermentation happens in a closed environment adding lots of sweetness and fruit flavours to the bean. Once dried the coffee is stored until it is ready to be hulled and distributed. Natural process coffees can be extremely fruity and sweet. They often have a muted acidity with slightly more body than their washed counterparts. We pick only the best lots out of each cupping flight to produce naturally sweet fruit bombs!
