About the coffee

Cherries are harvested at dawn and brought to pulp berries before early afternoon. Careful washing and grading is carried out on the same day before the wet parchment settles into separate fermenting tanks.
Fermented coffee is dried on raised tables enabling the beans to turn a shade of greyish blue favoured by roasters. The parchment is transported to the central hulling plant at Mizuku and sampled for moisture content, green grading, roast assessment and liquoring prior to hulling. Coffee is transported through Mozambique for shipment from Port of Beira on the Indian Ocean.
