ESSENCE BY SAVAGE, PANAMA, NATURAL CARBONIC MACERATION
This coffee comes from one of the world‘s most renowned
coffee farmers, Jamison Savage from Finca Deborah.
If a coffee farmer is really brave, or sometimes even crazy, they produce some funky lots with loads of intense flavours and aromas, and special or interesting notes due to special processing. If we come across one of those farmers or their coffee, we share it with you under the name „Mad Professor“ - but please don’t get mad if you find one of those coffees to be too funky.

NATURAL CARBONIC MACERATION
The Carbonic Maceration process has been
used in the wine industry for several decades.
Yet, the application of this process in coffee
is only a few years old. The process starts with harvesting overly ripe Caturra cherries reading above 24 on BRIX. After selection, the cherries
are tanked for an extended period with constant monitoring and cataloging of PH, temperature, and CO2 levels. After the required time inside
the CO2 infused tanks, exceeding 100 hours,
the coffee is then removed, and placed on
raised African beds. The cherries are agitated every 30 minutes and carefully monitored to ensure even drying throughout the cycle.
Temperatures are controlled inside the dryhouses and are not permitted to exceed certain levels as excessive heat can rupture
the cell walls of the coffee.
