This coffee comes from the same folks who brought us the Carmen Washed. However, this is a special microlot of Red Bourbon and Pacas that was set aside specifically for natural processing. The Alfaro family runs the beautiful Carmen Estate at 1300 meters above sea level in Apaneca Ilamatepec, El Salvador. For those who don't know, the natural process involves a water-free method of coffee cherry fruit removal. When done well, this process can provide an extremely sweet and pleasant fruit quality to a coffee. Some will not prefer this flavor but those who do know who they are and love finding examples like this one.
