ORANGE & DATES
This coffee from Alonso Bustos is one of a kind. Alonso has used anaerobic fermentation for 120 hours in sealed bags, removing the oxygen and then dried in cherry (natural). This extremely complex process deepens and enhances the flavors of the coffee with winey and fruity notes of orange, plum, dark chocolate and dates.
