We are proud to present Panama Geisha Echo, another coffee from our dear friend Jamison Savage. He’s one of the best farmers we ever met and his coffees are just unbelievable!
Echo is Geisha coffee, Carbonic Maceration Process, infused with Cascara. A unique method which gives to the bean an extraordinary taste and aroma.
The Echo process starts with harvesting perfectly ripe Geisha cherries reading 21-24 on BRIX. The cherries are then carefully selected for a second time before processing. After selection the cherries are pulped, leaving a certain percentage of fruit on the grain. A certain quantity of cascara, or the skin of the coffee cherry, is added into the tank and mixed within the freshly pulped coffee.
The pulped coffee is tanked for an extended period exceeding 50 hours and is constantly monitored and data catalogued. PH, temperature, and CO2 levels are the primary units carefully observed. Ambient temperatures are monitored and controlled to ensure linearity
in the processing as well.
After the required time inside the CO2 infused tanks, the coffee and cascara are removed, rinsed in freshwater to remove any residual fruit, coffee is removed and placed on shaded, raised African beds.
When the coffee has dried of about 11%, it’s then packed into grain-pro bags and stored in Bodega where the climate is stable. The reposo (seasoning) is very critical to Finca Deborah’s quality control. After the requisite rest, the coffee is hulled, sorted by size, density, colour, and shape.
Finally, the coffee is lightly vacuum packed and boxed for export worldwide.
Panama Geisha Echo is one of the most valuable coffees in the world and we are so excited to have it in our webshop!
