Coffee Picking

A bright, medium-bodied coffee with distinct floral tones in the aroma, an intense and complex flavor, flowery, grandly exhilarating acidity, flavor-saturated finish.

Washed Processing

It is the most commonly used coffee processing method, especially among premium coffees. After the red cherries are picked the coffee is further sorted by immersion in water. Less dense cherries will float and the others will sink. The skin of the cherry is removed using ecopulpers to get parchment coffee. Once it is realized that the mucilage is removed the coffee goes to a soaking tank.

Washed Processing

Stays there for about 12 hours, then will be taken to the raised bed where the coffee dries to the proper moisture level for about two weeks. The dried parchment will be taken to the cooperative warehouse, where the coffee rests before starting the long journey. When the coffee reaches appropriate moisture level, it will be further handpicked to remove exposed and damaged bean.

Coffee Processing

Processing of good coffee starts from the harvest. As such the farmers are advised to pick only fully ripe cherries. However, if the farmers turn out mixed cherries, manual sorting will be applied to separate good cherries from the others. Then it will be made ready either for pulping or special natural preparation
