The ripe cherries ferment inside a tank equipped with a valve system that prevents any gas from entering the tank. As the cherries ferment, they release CO2 and, because carbon dioxide is denser than oxygen, it pushes the lighter gas out through the valve. After a few hours, the tank environment becomes completely anaerobic, allowing the perfect conditions for microorganisms to perform enzymatic reactions inside of the beans. The beans were then pulped and dried on raised bed.
More about Aramosa from Daterra:
If you’re not familiar with the name Aramosa, you’re not the only one: this varietal is still in a “pre-cultivar” stage. That means that the genetics are still being tested, and the seeds will only become available for purchase and cultivation once they are fully stabilized. We have been researching these seeds for many years with IAC, the Agronomic Institute of Campinas – today, we have our own exclusive Aramosa selections! The Aramosa is a cross between Coffea Arabica and Coffea Racemosa. This crossbreeding was performed to inherit Racemosa’s low caffeine and drought resistance and Arabica’s flavour. Because the plant produces less caffeine, the beans always taste very sweet with no bitterness.
