This coffee is brought to us by Creativa Coffee District in Panama. CCD is a forward-looking Specialty Coffee processors at the Chiriquí province in Boquete, Panama. By transforming a traditional wet mill and drying patio into a modern state-of-the-art processing facility, CCD integrates art and specialty coffee in a unique and authentic space where artists are promoted and celebrated to inspire industry participants around the globe to support and demand new coffee production standards that guarantee higher incomes for growers and sustainable ecological practices for processing stations worldwide.
This particular coffee has been processed as a Dynamic Cherry. In this process, coffee is laid onto the patio in thin layers for two days before beginning the fermentation process in plastic bags. During this controlled process, the coffee embryo continues to transform the sugars in the endosperm into less complex sugars, and thus the coffee cherry remains “alive” for much longer. This can extend the process considerably, the longest batch of the harvest this year was three weeks. This processing method brings vibrancy and fruit to the cup, and we are very excited to share this coffee with you!
