Sequential Washed Coffee from Ratnagiri Estate. The method of processing is very important as well as unique, giving us a very balanced and clean cup! The green coffee beans, once depulped, are fermented for 12 hours. The unique element of this process is that after the initial fermentation the beans are washed before another round of fermentation process resulting to a very clean cup! Ratnagiri literally means Pearl Mountains, and the silver oaks that tower over the richly flavoured shade grown coffee give the hills a silvery hue explaining their name.
