Elias and Shady started to work with experimental coffee in a way that they could create and pass through the technology that would help to improve the quality of life of the families that work together with them in their project El Vergel State. Experimenting and looking for innovative methods they, with the help of Kaapo Paavolainen developed a fermentation technique using Asperigillus Oryzae.
To process these unique coffees, we use Asperigillus Oryzae. This type of fungus is reproduced in steamed rice. Then is dried and grounded, to be ready to applied to the coffee beans. We let the coffee ferment anaerobically for a couple of hours. At this time a white layer should be seen on the top of the coffee beans. Then is dried in African beds under the sun and stabilized in grain pro bags.
