Lot 13: Brandy Natural

Our ancient bourbon plants, almost typicas or closer descendants from them than most current bourbon strains, give yield to extremely carefully picked cherries. Brought to 25-26 brix degrees, they are then cautiously spread on our sun drying patios for 20 days, moved with a palm leaf to avoid the juices being squeezed. 

Then, the cherries are passed on to the African beds in our greenhouse. They will remain there for 10 more days until they reach 10% humidity.

Producer Story:

San Jose Ocaña has been in the family for over 100 years, and has always been a sustainable agricultural operation, which started mainly as a forestry farm management. In time, it evolved to be a fine coffee producing farm, serving only the prime specialty coffee market. This is mainly as result of its high altitude, good clayish soils and varietals.
