Over the past two years Jairo has developed his own unique processing method that he calls Carbonic Natural. The coffee cherries are placed in a sealed tank. As the coffee cherries begin to ferment they release CO2 which pushes the oxygen out of a valve in the tank & creates an anaerobic environment. The pressure created in the tank exerts force onto the cherries forcing them to release juices that act as a leachate. This enables a more enriched fermentation of yeasts & organic acids, creating a greater intensity of flavour, aroma & acidity. After a short 72 hour period the cherries are removed from the tank & continue fermentation via natural processing for an extended period of 45 to 50 days. Every step Jairo has taken in this process is to maintain clarity in the cup, whilst maximising sweetness & complexity.
