Description

Elvis Torres Sanchez owns 2 hectares of land in San Antonio. This year Elvis has started producing natural coffees after some success last year with some trials. Ripe catuai cherries are picked, washed and placed to dry on a lined patio, where they dry in the sun for around 20 to 25 days. Elvis has been experimenting with some pre fermentation on the naturals, to give the cup extra complexity and definition and he has found that macerating the cherries in bags in the shade for 24 to 48 hours lifts the profile of his coffee considerably.
