How do we process our coffee?

During the harvest we pick the dark red coffee cherries every day at different hillsides of the ranch. Our picked coffee is then processed within a few hours to ensure high quality. The first process called ‘wet process’ takes out the pulp of the coffee cherries and leaves us with the actual coffee beans. These are then washed and sundried for at least 48 hours. As soon as the coffee beans are dry, the second process called ‘dry process’ takes place where we peel the parchment skin off the coffee beans. Now our coffee beans are ready to be exported.

Part of our coffee remains with us and is handed over to the families who live and work with us at the ranch. In this way they can roast their ranch coffee and enjoy it daily during the whole year.
