The ZEO coffee process consists of applying a sublimation drying technique at negative
pressures assisted by zeolites, with the aim of generating a rapid dehydration process in
the cherry or coffee seed, which allows preserving the organoleptic properties of the fruit of the tree of coffee that in some varieties have specific profiles such as the geisha.
process description the geisha varieties grown at finca El Paraíso have been carefully
selected to develop complex and clean sensory profiles at the same time, showing in
each green bean the potential of correct processing that allows highlighting the floral,
fruity, citrus, and sweet notes that characterize a good geisha cup. 

The first step of the zeo geisha process consists of collecting the best coffee cherries, at
their optimal point of ripeness and carefully selected to avoid spoiling and damaging the
fruits. after harvesting, the coffee cherries are immediately taken to the ozone disinfection tank to remove impurities and unwanted microbiological load on the fruit. they are then transferred to an ultrafreezer that quickly lowers the temperature and freezes the coffee cherry in 4 hours at -40°c, the next step is to take the frozen fruit to the drying chamber in which the fruit is subjected to negative pressures to dry in a system aided by zeolites that allow the selective removal of water molecules, thus, allowing to retain many of the aromatic precursors present in the coffee cherry
