April Culture is unique coffee using the "culturing" processing method. The culturing process involves using fermentation starters and the unique natural flavours that come from fruits and aromatic plants. New sensory profiles have been developed by mixed fermentations between the starters and traditional coffee fermentation processes.

The April culture is created by combining tropical fruits, grown on the farm, with water and specific yeasts to create a "mosto". This magical liquid is then used in the fermentation of the coffee cherries, imparting unique flavours on a microcellular level.
