Wilton Benitez is a highly specialised coffee producer, with a lifetime of experience in cultivating exotic and sought after coffee. 

Wilton comes from a family background in coffee production, working on the family farm. It was here that he discovered the true potential of coffee through fermentation technology. Wilton started to take a real interest in the way that fermentation practices were delivered in other industries such as wine, beer, and cheese to aid the development of new and unique flavour compounds. Once he had an understanding of how these products were processed, he started controlling certain variables in the processing of coffee, including the sugar content, PH level and fermentation duration.

Wilton has told us that “everything is about control”. The process is complex but if the conditions are controlled and managed correctly then the results will create flavours that are very distinctive. Coffee cherry picking on Wilton’s farms is especially selective, so that only the very best cherries go through to classification, where they are sorted by density and size, then sterilised using UV technology before moving on to the fermentation process.

There are three main factors that provide his coffee with a unique and exquisite taste: the fermentation process, the microorganisms used at each stage, and the method of soaking the beans in hot and then cold water to seal the grain.

There are many stages to the fermentation process, and each individual cherry variety will have its own set of protocols depending on the desired flavour profile. The effort is worth it though, as a well executed fermentation will build on a coffees unique flavours, whilst taking care not to obscure any of the varietal’s intrinsic attributes.

All the coffees grown on the 3 farms require a high level of skill and management that, along with investments in the farm's own dry mill 3 years ago, allows Wilton and his team to have full control over each process.
