Yirgacheffe Chelichele Anaerobic

Anaerobic (oxygen-free) processing method was introduced to the region in 2020. The process is to ‘ferment’ the coffee in a fully sealed and oxygen deprived bag. First, the cherries are collected and separated from under ripe, over ripe and green cherries. Then, only the best fully ripe cherries are selected and tightly packed into special polypropylene bags. Oxygen is removed from the bags by sucking the air with vacuum machine. The bags are well sealed to prevent any oxygen re-entering. After around 18-24 hours, the anaerobic process will start and a build-up of CO2 gasses in the bag will occur. Typically, the cherries will be fermented for 4-5 days in the bags allowing the mucilage a long contact time with the coffee seed and the flavours of the sweet fruit to impart on the coffee. When the process is complete, the bright red cherry colour has charged to yellow tones. Once carefully removed from the tank, the coffee is dried slowly for 15-18 days on African drying beds in the full sun.This special preparation is utilised as the processing technique across our range of Ethiopian ‘Special Preparation’ and ‘Anaerobic Process’ coffees. The reduction of oxygen and fruit contact time can be varied to produce different cup profiles.


Roaster's Thoughts
