This shade grown, dry-processed Arabica bean is grown in the highlands of the Gera Estate at an altitude of 1880-2180m. With a focus on sustainable farming and improving conditions for its workers, the Gera Estate provides employees and their families with free housing, education, health care, and recreational facilities. The optimal soil and meticulous care result a full-bodied coffee with notes of molasses, blueberry, and bittersweet chocolate. We recommend a light roast to preserve the nuances of this balanced bean.
Dry-processed coffees, also known as “natural processed,” are coffees that are dried with the fruit left on the bean. As the coffee cherries dry and break down, they impart a bit of their flavor into the seed. This causes the fruity, often blueberry notes that make dry-processed coffees so special.
