About this coffee

After harvesting, the whole coffee cherries are placed in closed tanks with nitrogen, which replaces oxygen and allows better control of the cherry environment during this first stage of the fermentation process. This first operation, which lasts for about 50 hours, is carried out with careful control of the temperature and the pH value to avoid the development of undesirable aromas.

At the end of this first stage, the coffee is washed: the skin and the pulp of the fruit are completely removed. Next, the washed coffee is placed on the second level of a three-tiered drying bed system designed by Jamison Savage. This ensures gentle, even drying in the shade to prevent damage from direct sunlight or excessive heat. Once again, the temperature and humidity levels of the environment are controlled and maintained within well defined limits throughout the entire drying process.

When the coffee reaches a residual moisture content of 11% - after about 12 days - it is placed in bags and stored in a cool, stable temperature for several weeks. This resting period allows the moisture content of the coffee beans to equalize and the aromatic development to be completed. Finally, the parchment of the coffee is removed and the beans are sorted according to size, density and color before they are shipped.

Since 2016, he has been at the forefront of intentional, science-based, alternative processing approaches with podium-winning results. Jamison Savage of Finca Deborah, Iris Estate and Savage Coffees is known throughout the specialty coffee world for his pioneering methods. Using advanced processing techniques and farming practices that respect nature, Jamison brings out the best of a coffee's naturally occurring sensory nuances on the palate. It is for this reason that he has long been widely known, greatly admired and deeply respected by the earliest aficionados of specialty coffee, but most of all by the highest level coffee competitors and aficionados of coffee competitions.
Finca Deborah's mission is to cultivate, process, and deliver only the highest quality coffee available anywhere in the world. Located at an elevation of 1900+ meters and nestled deep in the mountains of Volcan, Finca Deborah is often shrouded in dense cloud coverage for most of the year. The plantation boasts a beautiful, natural environment where rare species of plants and animals thrive, and where Geisha coffee grows to its full potential under the protection of the lush rainforest canopy. Carefully monitoring the harvesting process is one of the most critical steps in a long list of quality control requirements. By hand-picking only the ripest cherries and processing those that meet our exacting standards, they can ensure that Finca Deborah Geisha stands as one of the world's best Geisha coffees.
