GUATEMALA CHERRY LIQUEUR LA MONTANA 250G
74,90 RON 0,00 RON
The Nueva Montana farm is located pretty close to the capital city of Guatemala and the urbanism has put its print on the costs of the farm, but the results clearly make up for it. Antonio Gonzalez and Eby Aracely know the latest tricks when it comes to the modern fermentation processes, this is the main reason the farm keeps doing well.
This lot undergoes a specific anaerobic fermentation that occurs for 48 up to 54h on a controlled temperature of 25° in closed sacks. In the cup, Guatemala La Montana offers a complex, fruity and slightly fermented profile, with notes of blackcurrants and cherries and a liqueur-like aroma.

We recommend that you buy fresh coffee beans and grind them on demand to prepare your beverage. Coffee is a product susceptible to rapid oxidation, this process is accelerated by grinding for the simple reason that grinding increases the surface that is exposed to oxygen.

When we brew French Press we aim for the balance between sweetness and body. The grind size is finer than regular french press recipes, one of the reason being the micro filters Espro Press uses ( which we highly recommend). If you have a really basic filter in your french press you should grind coarser and extend your brew time.
First step is pouring around 80 grams of water over the grinded coffee, in circular moves, trying to wet all the coffee so it makes contact with the hot water and starts blooming. This should take around 15 seconds, wait for extra 25 seconds and pour the rest of the hot water, in a circular move, so you constantly wet all the coffee particles that tend to stay afloat. The aim is to extract as even as possible the coffee particles, keeping them immersed in the hot water. Finish the extraction at minute 4 and try to move the coffee in a coffee server as it can keep extracting in the press.
