Prior to the use of anaerobic fermentation method, the development of the coffees was never fully understood and controlled – most of them were done by experience, trial and errors, and a bit of luck. Anaerobic fermentation in a tank allows better control with manipulatable pH level, Brix reading (°Bx) and temperature.
The anaerobic natural coffee is made by adding an extra step before the usual processing – they are fermented in an anaerobic environment in a fermentation tank for 4-6 days. The cherries are then processed per the usual natural processing practice – which is to be dried on raised beds in the sun.
The Q-grader described this coffee with aromas of berries and peach, followed by tasting notes of kyoho grapes, mango, and strawberry. Grab one and see if you agree!
