Andres Cardona Cochadas

For this coffee, Andres used one of the oldest processing methods: "Cochadas" , which means small batches. When they are in the middle of the big harvest, he picks small batches throughout the week. He goes ahead and begins fermenting some of the cherries first and then adds to it until they run out of space for the first batch (usually up to 5 days). So that means that some of the cherries have been fermenting for 5 days and some have been fermenting for 12 hours. This creates more complexity and acidity, allowing him to get some differentiated flavors like chocolate, notes of mint and citric acid that together make a clean and balanced cup of coffee!
