Marianela and her family use this method to get greater clarity of the flavors and attributes that can be achieved. In this process, the skin of the coffee cherry is removed mechanically using a specialized machine, called a de-pulper. The beans are put into fermentation tanks until the mucilage is no longer sticky. The sugar in the mucilage gets broken down during the fermentation process. This takes anywhere from 12 hours to six days and once the stickiness is used up, the remnants of the mucilage are washed off using lots of water.
The controlled fermentation of the mucilage imparts a certain amount of acidity into the coffee which persists into the cup. However, by washing the beans right after fermentation, much of the fruit flavor and acidity is removed. What remains are the more subtle flavors of coffee alongside a good bit of acidity.Flavor note: Crisp, well-pronounced balance, bright
Marianela and her family continue the family tradition of using the natural process with the dry process. Coffee cherries are cleaned and placed in the sun on various layers of beds. They are separated into the ripe cherries from unripe ones and laid out to dry for about four weeks, at which point, they reach the optimum level of moisture. This process gives the coffee a flavor similar to that of the cherries itself, which makes it extremely distinct from coffee produced using the washed processes.Flavor note: complex, heavy-bodied, bold, fruity and earthy
