Las Delicias Controlled Natural Process Lot, Apaneca-Ilamatepec, El Salvador. Northwest El Salvador is known for predictable weather patterns and defined wet and dry seasons—perfect for growing, harvesting and processing coffee. Sometimes, though, Mother Nature throws a curveball and sends unexpected rain when coffees are drying in the sun. This can be devastating to the coffees, introducing humidity and mold and marring an otherwise clean, sweet fruit signal. This season we collaborated with Don Miguel Menendez to conduct a coffee processing experiment. Instead of laying out the beans on traditional patios or raised drying beds to dry, we asked Don Miguel if he would dry a small lot of his natural-process Bourbon coffees in a large rotating mechanical dryer, often called a “guardiola.” These dryers control temperature and humidity, bringing a stabilized environment for the beans to come down to their target moisture level, thereby producing an exceptionally clean cup profile without the taints of traditionally sun-dried naturals. Hence the term, “Controlled Natural Process.” Guardiolas are often fueled with expelled coffee chaff from the prior season, making them both cost effective and environmentally conscious. Expect sweet spring strawberries and rose hips as filter coffee with an added pink grapefruit tone as espresso. (10oz/282gr bags).
