La Estrella is a delicate and clean coffee with notes of rose water, mandarine and tea-like finish.
The producer of this exceptional coffee is Aura Eliza Nupan. He carefully selects ripe cherries and begins post harvest processing by sorting out immature and over ripe cherries through removing “floaters” when the cherries are immersed in water. The next step is manually sorting cherries to ensure consistency.
Due to the farm’s humid climate, coffee dries in a parabolic dryer where they are exposed to the sun during the day and moved constantly to avoid mold formation and to dry the coffee evenly. Honey coffee is depulped but retains the layer of sweet mucilage to add dimension in the cup. In the dryer, coffee is covered overnight to avoid the early morning dew and maintain an even moisture content.
Aura constantly observes climate conditions, as they tend to vary drastically. Aura stores Finca La Estrella’s dried cherries in a dry warehouse in jute bags for the first ten days and then lets the cherries rest until they are dry milled and placed in GrainPro.
