PROCESSING INFO

All the coffee is collected separately by variety. The washed cherries are depulped immediately before their 12 hours of fermentation. Then, they are slowly dried in African beds until they acheive humidity percentage between 10.5% and 11.5%. This process lasts approximately 22 days at a temperature no higher than 30 degrees, depending on the weather.
Rigorous care is maintained, the coffees are constantly raked to prevent the coffee from being damaged and for a uniform drying. Quality control team is constantly monitoring it to check the humidity, once it reaches the required level, it is tasted to know the final result. After getting the cupping report, the dried parchment is packed in grain pro bags to maintain its quality and then packaged for export.
