Details from Bailies Coffee
This is our second year working with Rogelio Aguirre. Last year we noticed Rogelio grew Maragogype (A variety typically known for its surprisingly large beans).
However, the coffee plants were dispersed around the farm, processed and mixed with other varieties causing the rarity of the cherry to be lost.
We are extremely proud to be working with such a dedicated team of people and to share this limited lot.
The picked cherries are brought to the wet mill at the bottom of the valley where they are pulped and fermented for 14-16 hours. The coffee is then washed in channels and soaked in clean water for another 24 hours. The coffees are then dried on concrete patios slowly over 8 to 10 days. Before being exported the coffee was milled and processed in Cafcom’s dry mill in Palin, which is currently the official mill for all CoE microlots.
