Finca  Deborah  Afterglow is  a traditional  naturally  processed  Geisha.    Afterglow starts with a meticulous harvesting practice where  only  the  ripest, intact, cherries  are harvested with a BRIX reading over 21.  These cherries are quickly brought  to  the dry-house for post selection on the top level of Deborah’s 3-tiered African beds  system  designed  by  Jamison  Savage. While  on  the  top level  a  certain  depth  of  the  cherries is required to prevent over-fermentation and off flavors. Frequent agitation of  the  cherries  is  required  during the  first  several  days  in  order  to  minimize  any  possible opportunity  for a  fungal bloom and constant monitoring of  temperatures,  airflow, as well as humidity inside the dry-houses are critical.   

After several days in the direct sunlight the coffee is dropped to the second level bed  where it is essentially shade-dried for up to 30 days. This slow, methodical, process  gives  the  coffee  grain  an  opportunity  to  absorb the  layered,  natural,  and  complex flavors  provided  by  the  sweet  fruit. It  is  laborious  and  exhausting  work,  but  it  is  essential to bring out the best in this special coffee. 

After the coffees have been dried to 10.5-11% humidity it is placed in grain-pro bags  and stored in a bodega  for up  to 90 days.  This  “reposo” or  rest gives  the coffee  the  opportunity  to  equalize  the  humidity  inside  the  grain  and  stabilize  all  while  the  coffee continues  to absorb  the  sweetness and flavor Deborah Afterglow is  known  for. 

We buy this coffee directly from Savage Coffees.




- We usually "rest" our Geisha coffee for at least a week after roast date but preferably two weeks. The reason behind this is because in our experience the full flavour profile really comes to life 1-2 weeks after roasting. -
