  • Floating process in order to select the best cherries only (fully ripe).
  • 16 hour oxidation in cherry between 22 and 30 degrees Celsius.
  • Anaerobic fermentation in plastic cans for 38 hours at 16-18 Celsius.
  • The coffee is moved to open fermentation tanks for 6 hours where the leachates are collected so they can be used further on.
  • The coffee is pulped.
  • Oxidation process in mucilage for 6 hours.
  • Water and the leachates collected in step 4 are added to the coffee to begin a 24 hour submerged fermentation at 32 degrees Celsius. The mix is occasionally stirred so the mix is homogenous.
  • Thermal shock: the coffee is washed with water at 65-70 Celsius to finalize the fermentation phase.
  • The coffee is moved to parabolic drying systems for 18-24 days until 11% moisture is reached, where the maximum temperature is 30 degrees Celsius.
