Fermentation and drying information:
During the harvest we strive to make a selective harvest, harvesting only the mature grain, then it is brought to the wet mill to be processed the same day, the fermentation is natural/dry fermentation, it is done intanks and then it is washed. As for the drying of coffee, we do it in solar dryers and with drying times of an average of 15 to 20 days. It is then stored in grain-pro bags to ensure the quality of the grain.
