During the harvest, farmers selectively handpick the ripest, reddest cherries, which are then delivered to the cooperative’s wet mill on the same day. Cherries are hand sorted prior to pulping, with damaged and under ripe cherries being separated out from the red, ripe lots, and are further defined into lots according to quality. After pulping the coffee is fermented for between 12 to 16 hours. After fermentation, the coffee is washed in clean, fresh river water to remove all traces of mucilage before being delivered through sorting channels to dry on raised beds.
