El Salvador - Finca El Miramar - Anaerobic Natural
We have really been impressed with this anaerobic processed lot from a 45-acre estate called Finca Miramar, which is located near the town of Santa Tecla within the department of La Libertad. Known for experience in traditional processing, the team at El Carmen has taken their game to another level with controlled fermentations. To be precise, cherries from this lot were placed in airtight barrels for 96 hours with selected microbes and carefully controlled temperature to ensure a precise fermentation. Next the cherries were placed on raised beds and turned regularly for more than 30 days to ensure gentle and even drying. The processing method is innovative and also saves a tremendous amount of water resources, which is good for the environment. Notes of Red grape, Cherry, red fruits and chocolate make for a sweet and balanced cup that is as complex as it is delicious!
