Lot 11: Golden Honey

This variety is named after it's gold ochre parchment colour. After wet-milling, the same superbly picked dark maroon coffee cherries still with their sweet mucilage on, are moved away with our fermenting recycled water and directly to the sun drying patios. This is done by means of running them through canals, carefully avoiding to wash them. Using said water, assures we don't take away any of the sugar and mucilage.

No fermentation is involved, other than what will natural occur on the parchment skin whilst getting sun-dried. It will remain there for approx 18-20 days, taking detailed care of covering it with a shade cloth at high temperature hours of the day, day in day out.

Once it reaches a perfect humidity of 10.5%, it is then taken to our resting warehouse which is on the ground floor beneath a wooden building to create the perfect storage climate of 20°-21°.

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.
