Carbonic Maceration Process

With the carbonic maceration process, any variety with a starting point with a minimum of 90% ripeness and an average Brix degree of 20-24.
After selection, the coffee is deposited in plastic barrels to ferment in cherry for a period of 60 to 96 hours, after which it is then pulped and deposited again in the barrels with the same juice (mussto) that is rich in sugars and microorganisms, potentiating the fermentation process.

The tanks are hermetically covered to initiate the fermentation, thanks to the micro-organisms that begins to metabolize the sugar chains of the mucilage, developing attributes and releasing CO2 generating a maceration environment, this time can be between 80 to 120 hours, and then washed and taken to drying for a period of 18 to 25 days.
