ABOUT ANAEROBIC NATURAL PROCESS
Firstly, the cherries are immersed in water tanks and the low-density floating cherries are removed. Then, these cherries are sealed in an airtight fermentation tank. The Tanks are constantly monitored for 7 days to ensure no oxygen seeps through. The tank is placed in a rotating water bath to maintain a constant temperature between 15 - 18°C. On the seventh day as soon as the desired profile is achieved with the PH level dropping to 3.8 the tanks are opened.
The second step is the drying process where the quick drying method is used to drop the humidity of cherries to 35% and then the cherries are dried further under the sun for 30 days. Once the cherries have reached 12% humidity they are stored in the warehouse for four week resting period.
