Manuel Gonzalez has been operating his 60-hectare property for the past 15 years. 30 of those are host to 102,000 coffee trees, growing beneath the shade of avocado and citrus trees. During the harvest, he employs 15% of the area. High quality standards are implemented at every step of cultivation, with every cherry being hand-picked at peak ripeness.

STATIC CHERRY PROCESS
For this process, the ambient environment is crucial. We seal the cherry into plastic tanks, with no oxygen present. By creating an anaerobic environment, we allow certain bacteria and yeast to develop at a slower rate. This means we are free to experiment with different durations, in this case, an average of 24 to 72 hours. These relatively short fermentations lend a subtle vibrancy to the profile, due to the prevalence of lactic acids in the cherry.
