Double fermentation

We are excited to introduce this coffee produced by Vinhal Estates in Minas Gerais, Brazil. So what is the double fermented and thermal shock honey process that this coffee undergoes? After being mechanically harvested the coffee cherries are washed and sorted to select only ripe cherries. They then undergo a dry aerobic (with oxygen) fermentation for 78 hours, after which they are subject to a ‘Thermal Shock’ stage. The cherries are de-pulped and then go through a dry anaerobic (without oxygen) fermentation for 208 hours with 100% of the mucilage. Finally, the coffee is left to dry on raised beds for 19 days.

Anaerobic fermentation

Fermentation is a chemical process whereby carbohydrates, such as sugars are broken down into alcohols or acids by microbial activities in the absence of oxygen. While fermentation is, by its nature, an anaerobic process, the term “anaerobic fermentation” refers specifically to fermentation that occurs in a custom-built, oxygen-free environment, such as a sealed container or tank.
