Costa Rica Santa Rosa Bernan

 

Santa Rosa is one of Bernan Urena’s farms located at 1900 masl, where he grows Caturra and Catuai. At the wet mill where Bernan depulp the cherries, they did two different processing for Santa Rosa, both washed and honey process. For the washed process they mechanically demucilage the cherries, removing as much mucilage from the parchment as the machine allows. After this Bernan takes the wet parchment to sun-dry, it takes around 10 days to get to the right moisture content to storage it.
