Region: Sabanilla De Alajuela
Process: Black Diamond Natural
We taste jammy acidity, fruit forward, and sweet florals.
What makes this process different from all the rest, is the intentional curing process. It is still a natural process, but the drying period takes between 15 to 22 days. The process is very similar to their other natural processes: starts with the rigorous harvesting standards, sorting and it's let to dry the superficial humidity for one day on raised beds. Then the beans are moved from the raised beds to the drying patio.
With this process, they don’t want to harm the beans with high temperatures rather than allow the sugars of the mucilage to cold crystalize. They look to obtain a sweeter, more clear, and bright coffees with the Diamond process.
