What is Intrinsic process and who are Creativa Coffee District?
At Creativa Coffee District they ferment the cherry in a way that they call Intrinsic Cherry where they ferment the cherry in the very same bag that the coffee came in. With this way they can maintain the process and the essence of each micro-lot. The bacteria and yeast strains are unique and may vary in each batch, and by involving them in fermentation they let every cherry shine.
At CCD they open the fermentation environment to the air and allow nature to guide the temperature - which averages at 30 degrees Celsius. In this case they keep an eye on the process to make sure it doesn’t go over 45 degrees Celsius, to prevent the cherries from overheating.
The different lots are kept in fermentation between 12 and 72 hours.

Coffee growers at Panama rarely get to process their coffee cherries in the way that the specialty coffee industry requires. At CCD, we are creating a community with those coffee growers committed to maintaining sustainable crops to buy their coffee cherries and process them at our station. With our state-of-the-art facilities and our innovative processing methods, we will challenge the status quo by changing the way that coffee farmers have used to grow, process, and market coffee.
Inspired by the Neighbors & Crops coffee model of LA PALMA & EL TUCAN in Colombia, we have established cooperating relationships with coffee producers in Hornito, Renacimiento, and Boquete. By controlling every step of the process, we are willing to push the limits and guarantee exceptional coffee profiles for Panama coffees.
The farms we work with are located at an altitude range between 1.300 and 1.800 m.a.s.l.
