The harvested red ripened cherries are harvested and picked
from trees with a high production and without any disease or other affliction.
The delivered cherries are inserted to wet processing machine in the same day.
Before pulping under ripe and over ripe cherries are picked out from the good
cherries. After pulping, the parchment coffee is fermented for 72 hours so that
the mucilage can removed easily. After fermentation, the parchment is washed to
isolate the floater coffee and after get rid of floater the final washing is
done and the heavy parchment is taken to the drying table.
The table, which is
made up of chicken wire, is covered by Hessian cloth, and the parchment coffees
are spread thinly. After slow drying for 2 weeks, the dried coffee is weighted
and traceability is assured through clear recoding of incoming coffee and the
steps in processing and storage. Fully washed coffee is classified by grade for
absolute best but normal export quality sells as grade 2 which allows 12
defects with a clean cup.
