This coffee was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours before
being placed inside Grainpro bags for 90 hours, maintained at a
temperature below 22oC. In this environment, the bacteria feed on
carbohydrates and sugars found on the mucilage leading to a higher
concentration of lactic acid. Then this coffee was placed on raised
beds until 11% moisture content is achieved.
The Yellow Pacamara is a natural mutation of the Red Pacamara (a
cross between a Maragogype and Pacas). It was discovered by the
Mierisch Family in Nicaragua. Yellow Pacamara cherries are similar to
the more common Pacamara variety.
