La Fantasia, Colombia

Coffee cherries are picked perfectly ripe, hand sorted and floated to remove unripe and over-ripe cherries. The coffees are then pulped before being placed in temperature & humidity controlled tanks and flushed with carbon dioxide (CO2) to remove oxygen from the tank. The 'Carbon Maceration' process allows for control over how fast or slow sugars are broken down from the mucilage by the yeast and they interact with the coffee gives exciting results in how they interact with the cup.

Halo Beriti, Ethiopia

Halo Beriti washing and drying station collects coffee from neighboring smallholder farmers in Ethiopia's Yirgacheffe district. The average grower plots are tiny. Less than a hectare in size but with idyllic high altitudes, fertile, well drained red brown clay soil and temperatures ranging from 20-23 degrees. Farmers grows avocado, soya beans and sugar cane beside their coffee trees. The beans are fermented for three days before being separated from the fruit. This process allows the beans to absorb the sugars in the coffee fruit, creating a stronger full-body flavour.
