This offering comes to us courtesy of producer Rafael Ortiz Oliva. His farm, Finca San Rafael, is located in Palo de Campana and is a total of 11 manzanas planted entirely in Bourbon with 50% shade cover. Generally, when it comes to harvest and processing only ripe cherries are picked and depulped on the same day. For honey, coffee is placed immediately on raised drying beds and turned according to the style preferred. For washed coffees, the depulped selection is set to ferment for a minimum of 12 hours, washed, then placed on a patio or raised beds to dry for an average of 12 day’s time.
