Felipe Trujillo named this coffee after the Portuguese wine, Oporto, for how it smelled during the drying face. In the cup, it is delicate, fruity and sweet. With a full body, and of course, wine-like flavors. A Castillo variety, just like many of Felipe’s processes, this unique flavor profile is obtained after 136 hours fermentation in cherry in open tanks. An open tank fermentation, like it happens in a regular Natural process, creates acetic acid which turns into sweet and fruity sensations and when done right, a balanced acidity. After the fermentation in the tanks face, the beans are then transported to a raised bed for a period of between 4 to 5 weeks until they reach 11% - 12% moisture content.
