About Latitude - Natural Process
The natural (or dry) process is one of the oldest methods of coffee production. Coffee cherries are picked and then directly dried under the sun or on raised screens as full cherries. Once the cherry is dried, it turns into a dark brown pod that is hard to the touch; the green seed is then taken out, leaving the other layers behind. This is an incredibly labor-intensive and hands-on method, which is exactly the kind of challenge embraced by Carta founder, Scott Burr. As a winemaker and farmer, Scott thrives on trying innovative and challenging techniques, especially if it means offering something truly special to his customers.
This style produces sweet, smooth, and nutty complex flavors.
Latitude - Traditional:
- Enjoy clean and bright flavor with distinct citrus notes
- 100% Kona Coffee
- Shipped directly from the farm to you
- Traditional "wet" method (Mechanical extraction of the bean from the cherry)
About Latitude - Traditional Process
This expression is processed in the “wet” method, which is the mechanical extraction of the bean from the cherry and washing to remove any impurities or remnants. Founder Scott is calling this “Traditional Process” because this tends to be the more traditionally used drying methods in the Kona region. A believer in conserving both water and flavor, Scott is using a process that uses the minimum amount of water needed to remove and cleanse the beans, without stripping desired flavors.
This method tends to produce coffee with clean, bright, with distinct citrus notes.
