Coffee cherries are grown at altitudes ranging from between 1700 and 2100 masl. Once collected, the cherries are floated by water in the floating tanks before passing through a Mckinnon disc pulper and then transferred to fermentation tanks where they undergo 14 hours of dry fermentation. The coffee is then sorted in density grading channels by enough clean water where we do separate coffees by three qualities that is Grade A, B and C.
Those different qualities are moved separately to be sorted again at the pre-drying tables and then transferred to raised African beds to dry for 16 to 20 days. When dried, these coffees are well kept and wait for time to be hulled and being sorted by experienced women before being packed in Grainpro and Jute bags for export. During this entire process, there is deliberate effort to avoid the feared potato defect by tirelessly sorting and floating the cherries after receiving them at the washing station and later the beans on the raised beds.
This lot is composed of Grade A only - high quality dense coffee.
