Coffee production in Nueva Alianza
Nuvea Alianza grows many different coffee varieties with unique processes such as natural, honey or washed. Thanks to this diversity, the farm finds strengths and competitive products to focus on and further improve.
The farm uses a selective harvesting process and grinds the coffee (with a stainless steel mill) before pre-fermentation for 24 hours, then anaerobic post-grind fermentation for 48 hours. Next, the coffee is washed and bed-dried in a solar dryer for 20 days.
Nueva Alianza and Gesha
Coffee berries of the Gesha variety are harvested during the full moon; only the reddest berries are selected at their ripest time. The qualified coffee cherries will then be crushed without using water and then fermented in a cold barrel for about 30 hours. After fermentation, the farmer will rinse the coffee with water and dry it in a shade tree for 20-25 days.
With this process, the original flavor notes and acidity in coffee are maximally preserved without being changed or lost during processing.
The excellent quality of coffee is the reason Nueva Alianza is becoming more and more famous, attracting a large number of buyers from all over the world.
Nueva Alianza always ensures responsibility, sustainability, and traceability
In cultivating and producing coffee, Nueva Alianza is always aware of its responsibility to protect the environment. Farmers regularly take care of nature, not letting the growing, harvesting, and processing processes harm the environment.
In its relationship with the entire industry, Nueva Alianza does not allow gender inequality, price instability or accusations of not ensuring conditions for workers to occur. All production information (varieties, farming conditions, preliminary processing methods, farmers, etc.) is transparent, allowing partners to understand and check clearly.
Realizing that these characteristics are consistent with its five core values and four strategic approaches, XLIII Coffee chose Nueva Alianza as its new partner for the next lots of coffee. Let’s wait and see what XLIII Coffee will do to enhance the flavor of the eggplants from Nueva Alianza!
