Lalcafe BSC™

Lalcafe BSC™

Lalcafe BSC™

For the control of the fermentation process against the risk of spoilage microorganisms which can generate undesirable defects. Allows for a clean fermentation.

Coffee fermentation can be done using different processing technics depending on the style being sought after. Coffee can be processed whole or depulped, submerged or dry. In all cases it is important to control the fermentation. The wet process consists of submerging all the pulped coffee into clean water during a certain time. During this period of maceration (when the coffee is under water), two phenomena happen, depending on the duration of the maceration. The first one is demucilagination and the second is the expression of the sensory characteristics/attributes of the coffee. Both steps are commonly called fermentation.

During whole fruit processing, the yeast offers a protective role as it outcompetes the indigenous flora for the food available through the wound of the cherry. Fermentation also takes place hence controlling the process is paramount for green beans with a clean profile. This is a biological process mainly due to yeast action LALCAFÉ BSC™ yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). LALCAFÉ BSC™ has been screened and characterized over a four-year period of research and trials. The results of the trials performed on Arabica and Robusta in different mills around the world confirm that LALCAFÉ BSC™ is really a robust strain and very well suited to better control the fermentation process.

Its specific metabolism and its high capacity of implantation even at cold temperatures (Minimum 15°C inside the coffee tank) allows for a clean fermentation without flavor enhancement.
