About San José Ocaña

San José Ocaña take pride on having the highest standard of picking point (ripeness) possible. Each daily lot and variety on any given day is processed individually. After fermentation, the second stage at the wet mill, comes the washing process for the larger part of production. That gets done with water from the soaking of the previous day´s lot.

The farm is considered as a late crop, meaning the picking season and harvest occur at a later date. Starting in January, the very first small amounts of ripe cherries are picked and this continues into May as the quantites increase. This ensures that the coffee is still fresh even now.
