Standing out from the crowd. Improving coffee fermentation and cup quality
We are very privileged to have been the first roaster to have bought the coffees produced by the women coffee growers of the Flores em acao group of the APAS Cooperative in Mantequeira de Minas.
Producing specialty coffees requires many skills from the producers’ perspective to continuously improve and produce the highest cup quality. In particular in recent years we have seen many new fermentation techniques emerging.
To gain more knowledge about fermentation basics, brix levels, carbonic maceration etc. 23 Degrees funded a 3 day fermentation course for the women of Flores em acao. The results are amazing. Seeing this group of women thriving and producing some of the finest coffees in Brazil makes us very proud.
Try for yourself and taste the amazing coffees produced by the women coffee growers. With the newly gained knowledge, Andressa, a young coffee farmer, produced a stunning natural carbonic macerated coffee.
