Monteblanco Pink Bourbon Fruit Juice is the latest processing innovation from the team at Aromas del Sur. During the harvest, all coffees are measured for their degrees Brix to determine sugar content and allocate them to the best-suited processing method. Cherries with 26° Brix are chosen for Fruit Juice Anaerobic Washed processing. First, floater cherries are removed and the remaining healthy cherries are placed in sealed tanks with zero oxygen for 100 hours, roughly four days.
Next, cherries are depulped and the beans are returned to the sealed tanks for another 60 hours. Once the temperature has reached 38°C and the pH is 4.6, the coffee is thoroughly washed and transferred to the drying stage. Beans dry in the solar dryer for three to four days and are then placed on raised beds in the shaded dryer for 20-25 days until they reach 10.5-11% humidity.
