TROPICAL FRUIT. CREAMY. PLUM JAM.
La Fortaleza is a 4-hectare farm with 3 hectares planted with coffee,
Among the coffee trees, there are also other plants, such as yuca, beans, corn, and sugar cane. For four months out of the year, the ripest coffee cherries are picked and depulped the same day. Then it’s fermented dry for at least 15 hours.
The coffee is then washed until the mucilage is completely removed, and dried in a combination of raised beds and under canopies. Drying takes about 10 days, give or take based on weather conditions.
