Type of green coffee beans

Through Fantine you can source different types of green coffee beans.

Controlled fermentation process- Green coffee beans

We call controlled fermentation coffee those coffee beans obtained through a specific protocol developed by the producer to promote outstanding profiles. These protocols can include traditional processes such as washed or natural, alone or combined in various stages of fermentation and generally include the use of tools to measure variables such as time, temperature, humidity as well as the intentional use of strains of microorganisms that positively affect the sensory profile.

Natural process- Green Coffee beans

We call natural coffee the coffee obtained by drying the whole ripe coffee cherries together with their peels without going through the pulping process. This allows a slow and prolonged fermentation inside the cherry.

Washed process- Green Coffee beans

We call washed coffee when cherries are depulped mechanically to take out the peel or naturally by fermenting the cherries in tanks to separate the mucilage from the beans, then washed with clean water before being taken to the drying patios or silos.

Honey process- Green Coffee beans

The process to obtain a honey coffee is an intermediate process between the two previous ones. The coffee is pulped (the peel is taken off) but the mucilage is kept on. Then beans are taken to the drying station.
