Liza Washing Station
Owned by a fourth-generation farmer. Jean-Paul has passionately nurtured a plantation consisting of over two-thousand trees and perfected the art of production for his region. Since taking over Jean-Paul has built a cupping lab in the pursuit of achieving exceptional coffee. The farmers he works alongside have farms ranging from 1550 - 1900 meters above sea level.
Liza – Double Anaerobic Fermentation
Upon delivery to the washing station, coffee cherries are floated to wash them as well as remove any defects, since underripe cherries will float to the water surface where they can be taken out.
After this, the cherries are placed into sacks, which are then sealed so that no air can get in and left in a cool, shaded spot for 48 hours.
Next, the coffee is removed for pulping and washing as usual, but not all the mucilage is discarded.
The coffee and mucilage are placed back into sealed sacks for another 48 hours of fermentation.
Once that time is up, the coffee is fully washed before being shade dried for a day.
Finally, the beans are spread out onto raised beds to dry in the sun.
