About the coffee:
De-pulping process is initiated within 6 to 8 hours after harvesting the cherries from the coffee trees to prevent further natural fermentation.
We ferment the coffee in a fermentation tank 36-48 hours to loosen the mucilage.
Washing ProcessThe coffee parchment is washed in the water channel by the staff team members at the washing station, until mucilage is removed.
- The way to determine the outcome is seeing the clarity of water. Throughout the washing process the cloudy water is replaced until it’s resulted in clear transparent water.
- The sound difference when pushing & pulling the coffee parchment in the water channel. A slight traction noise is noticed in the process which indicates a near completion.
- As simple as checking manually to feel for the slim/mucilage.
Once fermentation & washing is complete, we lay out the parchment on raised African beds under a parabolic shade net for 5-7 days, depending on weather conditions. Once the moisture content is at 11% - 12% it's then relocated to nearby warehouse for storage.
