ART OF PRODUCTION:
Hand-picking coffee cherries is important as only the most ripe cherries that have developed flavor are picked. After depulpation, the fermentation process begins. The grains are in a collection container with water for about 12 hours. After that, the drying process according to the African method of “sun beds” begins, which lasts 12 to 15 days, depending on weather conditions. When processing coffee, they try to use as little water as possible. Coffee pulp is later used as a fertilizer, and a few percent is used as an ingredient for natural skin exfoliation.
