Pre and Post Harvest:
Farmers selectively handpick ripe, red cherry and process it on their farms. The cherry is fermented for 20 hours and then pulped. Most of the farmers working have an ecopulper, which uses less water. Pulped coffee is fermented in water for 30 hours. Following fermentation, coffee is washed in clean water and laid on patios or elvas on the roofs of their homes. Parchment is raked frequently to ensure even drying. It takes approximately 20 to 22 days for parchment to dry

Best suited for the Espresso Brewing Method (Espresso Machine, French Press or Moka Pot).
