Process

Before harvesting, the cherries are constantly measured for ripeness using refractometers. The point they reach peak sweetness the cherries are manually picked and brought to the on-farm wet mill.

The cherries are then washed, imperfections removed and transported onto raised beds, where they are turned regularly to allow for slow and even drying.

Once the cherries reach the ideal moisture content they’re sent to the on-farm dry mill where the husks are removed and coffee is prepared for export.
