The perfume of the peach

This coffee was first exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 72 hours with the pulp on, where wine yeast and peaches were also added to the fermentation tanks. After the fermentation stage, the coffee cherries were pulped and placed to dry on raised beds with peaches placed amongst the coffee until ideal moisture content was achieved.

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.
