More About This Coffee
Primitiva Apaza Quea has been cultivating coffee on Finca Santa Rosa for nine years. In Alto Inambari, the harvest period is between August and September. Bourbon and Typica trees are grown on two hectares of land and planted 1 x 1.5 meters apart. The average age of trees is seven years. Ripe cherry is picked, then immediately fermented for 16-20 hours in water. Wastewater is treated in sedimentation wells. Washed parchment coffee is then set to dry for 10-12 days days under a parabolic dryer on raised beds before sent to the dry mill. Dryness is determined by color where blue-green is ideal or by way of other sensory evaluations such as the ‘tooth test’.
