Lactic fermentation is a controlled process that creates an environment allowing for the growth of Lactic Acid Bacteria. The process occurs under anaerobic conditions and constant measurement of the oxygen level, sugar content, and pH. The bacteria feed on sugars clinging to the coffee parchment, generating high concentrations of lactic acid that impacts the coffee's flavor profile. After the desired pH is achieved, the coffee is soaked in clean water to stop the growth of the bacteria and then dried for at least 15 days.
