Grown at over 2000 metres above sea level means this coffee has bright, fruity flavours like cherry and apricot. It is selectively hand-picked before being delivered to collection points, usually within 10 km of the producers’ homes. Once the beans are delivered, great care & pride is taken to separate out any overripe, underripe or damaged beans. The coffee beans are consolidated with other lots for the road to the wet mill.
Harvesting the coffee cherry occurs in November & December during the harvest season after which coffee is delivered to the mill, at least once a day. Drying the beans occurs on African beds under a canopy after delivery and sorting. The parchment is then turned regularly and protected from hot sun to protect the beans from burning. If the climate is mild it may be delivered to the beds to dry under sun. To reach optimal humidity it remains here for around 23 days. Then it is bagged and rested.
