About the coffee:

This coffee comes from one of the most famous (and expensive) coffee producers in the world - Jamison Savage.

The lot is called Inflection. It is a carbonic maceration washed Caturra. Processing goes as follows:

  1. Coffee cherries are washed and depulped.

  2. Coffee beans go to steel tanks for 3 to 5 days fermentation phase with carbon dioxide in low temperatures.

  3. Once the target pH is reached, coffee beans are dried on African beds.

  4. When the coffee has dried to approximately 11% it is bagged in grain-pro and stored in Bodega where temperatures are cool and stable. This seasoning process is critical to Deborah’s quality control. Reposo/rest provides the coffee an opportunity to settle and equalize its moisture content as well as absorb more flavor from it’s shell or parchment.  After the requisite rest the coffee is hulled, sorted by size, density, color, and shape.
