This coffee utilises an ‘anaerobic honey’ process. Coffee is selected and harvested then left In cherry for 24 hours. The coffee is then pulped and in an additional step recently introduced, there is a non-oxygen fermentation period after pulping. This increases the opportunity for a more prolonged drying overall and can lead to more flavour development without inducing negative fermented flavours.
The coffee is then laid out to dry on multi layered raised beds where it is turned at 9am, 12 mid day and 2pm over the course of 18 - 20 days. It is covered at night to protect from excess moisture. The coffee is processed at the San Ignacio Mill in Mozonte, near Ocatal in Nueva Segovia. The mill manager Mayerling Escoto has specific responsibility for all the processing at this microlot-only mill.
The Peralta Estates are situated in the San Fernando, Nueva Segovia Region of Nicaragua, close to the Honduras border. The farm is nestled within lush dense forest and rolling hills, making this prime specialty coffee country. Nicaragua has a long history with coffee but over the past few years has become increasingly well known for top specialty coffee, due to the influence of producers like Julio and Octavio.
