All cherries are hand-sorted before a pre-pulp float, under-ripe or damaged cherries are removed. After fermentation, coffee is released into a large serpentine grading channel. This is a moving channel of water that allows any floaters or foreign objects to float off and be discarded.
The Cherries are then floated in pre-pulping process removing any floaters and later pulped. Next, the coffee is fermented in dedicated concrete fermentation tanks for an average of 12 hours. During this time the fermented parchment is agitated several times through the day in a ceremonial foot stomping. The coffee is given a final wash before being pre-dried sorted, dried and packed.
