Baarbara Estate - Intenso Yeast
Natural (Intenso Yeast)
Headstarting this year’s exciting Producer Series 2023 is an experiment from Baarbara Estate. After being carefully handpicked and sorted, coffee cherries were washed with the stream of water which flows down the estate. Then began the true experiment. Intenso yeast was mixed and fermented with the cherries for 72 hours and post the fermentation, the cherries were dried on raised beds for a minimum of 20 days. Thus, resulting in this beautifully vibrant coffee, with tasting notes of honey and marigolds.
