Ovidio Garcia Anaerobic Natural
Flavors of maraschino cherry, chocolate, and maple
Ovidio Garcia is a small-scale farmer in Guatemala who was determined to stand out and add more value to his coffees in order to receive better prices for his family. He built a solar drier to protect the coffee from the elements and raise the drying temperature. The effect is outstanding: fruity, intense, and unique.
This is an Anaerobic Naturally processed Catuai varietal lot, which is a rare and somewhat risky process. The freshly picked coffee cherries were sealed in a barrel, with a CO2 release valve attached to push out the oxygen coming off the cherry as they fermented.
