    About the coffee

    La Negrita is owned by former surgeon Mauricio Shattah and his wife Liliana.

    Mauricio is known for applying a meticulous scientific approach to specialty coffee.

    For this lot, ripe Gesha cherries are put into a stainless-steel tank with added yeasts and fermented for 48 hours in a climate-controlled room. After the fermentation; the cherries are dried in a UV protected dark room on raised beds, using only natural infrared and high airflow to dry the coffee for 6-8 weeks. 

    Gesha is known for elegant floral notes with complex citrus acidity, but thanks to Mauricio’s unique processing: the flavours are cranked up and transformed into deep and deluxe strawberry candy, sticky tropical fruits, and rounded off with a kirsch booziness.
