Peru El Eden
EL EDEN is a coffee profile, the name was for a specific process that is typical of a group of farmers. The coffee is fermented in closed sacks before it is depulped. It is a very different coffee from the usual washed coffees in the region. El Eden is actually not a terribly remarkable place, with coffee being fairly new to the region.
Producers immediately after harvesting, make a flotation process to clean debris and remove floaters (low-density fruits) and do the first fermentation in plastic bags for around 24-36 hours, then pass the coffee fruit through mechanical depulpers and do the second fermentation in tanks for another 24-36 hours, depending on the environment temperature. Then, the seeds are washed and dried until the moisture content reaches 9–11%.
