Processing

The carbonic maceration process is inspired by the wine industry. It was first brought to the coffee industry in 2015 by Sasa Sestic during his winning World Barista performance in Seattle, USA.

This lot was processed through a 24-hour aerobic fermentation followed by 50 hours of carbonic maceration process by adding CO2 to the cherries in an anaerobic environment at a temperature below 22°C. Lastly, the cherries were dried on raised beds until the optimal moisture content was reached.

Typica is an oldest variety from Yemen and was cultivated in Colombia in the late 18th century.

coffee variety
Typica

Typica is the most famous of the Typica-descended varieties. It is a tall variety characterized by very low production, susceptibility to major diseases, and good cup quality.

The Typica group, like all Arabica coffee, is supposed to have originated in southwestern Ethiopia. Sometime in the 15th or 16th century, it was taken to Yemen. By 1700, seeds from Yemen were being cultivated in India. In 1696 and 1699, coffee seeds were sent from the Malabar coast of India to the island of Batavia (today called Java in Indonesia). These few seeds were the ones to give rise to what we now know as the distinct Typica variety.
