Nowadays, Norbey works primarily with Cofinet to sell his coffee. They have collaboratively developed processing methods for Norbey’s coffees, including this heavily pre-fermented washed protocol. First, ripe Pink Bourbon cherries are carefully sorted, and floated to remove low density and defective fruit. The cherries are then fermented in open tanks for 24 hours, before being sealed in plastic bags with no access to oxygen for 90 hours. During the second fermentation, the temperature is controlled so that the fermentation mass doesn’t exceed 22°C. Finally, the cherries are depulped, washed and dried on raised beds. This method creates a very clean and crisp expression, still focussing on the characteristics of the raw material, but enhancing the juicy tropical fruit notes we often find in Pink Bourbon.
