Flavor Factoid - This particular lot is an example of Elkin's many experiments: The coffee is harvested at 24° Brix, and depulped the same day that it's picked, as well as sorted using a zaranda, a kind of screen-size sorter that removes lower-quality beans.Then, Elkin put the coffee through what he is calling an "anaerobic melazas" fermentation, "melazas" meaning "molasses" in Spanish. The depulped coffee is dry-fermented in open air for 18 hours. Then the beans are put in covered tanks to ferment for 24–36 hours, with molasses added to the beans to provide "energy" or sugars for the yeasts and bacteria to break down.
