About the Producer
Named after the large, old pine trees visible due to the height of the farm, Renardo Ovalle began planting several plots on Los Pinos with Caturra, Bourbon, and Pacamara in 2013 as an experiment. The resulting lots proved to have a distinct and unique character owing to the soil and height of the farm. We source both ‘washed’ and ‘anaerobic washed’ lots from Los Pinos.
This lot undergoes a brief amount of anaerobic fermentation as full cherries before being processed as a standard washed lot. Cherries are picked by hand to ensure only completely ripe cherries are collected before being placed into plastic bags and sealed to ferment anaerobically. After 48 hours, cherries are depulped and fermented for 36 hours, before being washed and dried on a patio until they reach the required humidity and moisture level.
