When the cherries are brought to the wet mill, they undergo a methodical selection process, carefullyremoving immature and overripe beans. Subsequently, these cherries embark on an anaerobicfermentation journey within their cherry coats, with the duration ranging from 24 to 36 hours, a timeframe influenced by the prevailing weather conditions. Following this, the cherries are expertlyde-pulped and subjected to a second round of anaerobic fermentation, lasting between 72 to 96 hours, a timeline carefully adjusted according to the weather conditions. If the days are warmer, the hours arefewer; if cooler, more hours are allocated.
Upon completion of the meticulous fermentation process, the coffee undergoes a thorough washing. Following this, the beans are meticulously dried in a specialized greenhouse structure, a painstakingprocess that can span anywhere from 12 to 20 days, depending on the particularities of the climate.
This elaborate journey of coffee cultivation and processing, overseen by Don Wilson Ordoñez resultsin a truly exceptional coffee experience that invites you to savor Colombia’s unique terroir and theinnovative spirit of its coffee pioneers.
