PROCESSING NOTES: This lot is sourced from around 700 farmers living in the Yirgacheffe, Gedeb district. Farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Chelba coffee station where they are carefully sorted and immediately placed on raised beds and dried over a period of 15-20 days. These African raised beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for optimal, steady drying. Cherries are also turned on a regular basis to prevent damage via over-fermentation and/ or mould growth. The cherries are stored at a local warehouse after the moisture is recorded at 11.512% and then further processed (colour, density and screen size sorted) and milled ready for export.
