Nos hospedamos en un hotel en Antigua y cada día nos desplazamos 15 minutos hasta la finca donde se encuentra el beneficio. Estos transportes están incluidos en el ticket.

Iniciamos recibiendo la cereza que llega del campo como introducción a lo que será la semana de entrenamiento. Despulpamos y nos adentramos en el mundo de la fermentación de 3 estilos diferentes (Levadura o alcohólico, proceso desnudo y láctico).

Degustamos cafés preparados en el campamento anterior y tenemos un acercamiento con el cultivo. Revisamos las mejores prácticas y protocolos de secado, resolvemos preguntas frecuentes y finalmente concluimos con un espacio para debatir lo aprendido. Todo esto alternado con tiempos de clase donde revisamos la ciencia y el fundamento científico de lo que ocurre en el tanque de fermentación.

Es un taller práctico para cualquier persona interesada en conocer más a fondo el proceso. Por lo general asisten personas de diferentes partes del mundo como tostadores, productores, exportadores y entusiastas.
