Once farmers bring their cherries to the factory, they are sorted and processed as soon as they arrive:
In the Kenya process, first, the cherries are sorted, and under-ripe/overripe cherries are removed. Once the sorting is finished, the coffee is then depulped. The coffee is then left to ferment in white ceramic tiled tanks for 24 hours.
Next, the coffee is stirred for a short amount of time and left to ferment for another 24 hours. The coffee goes through sorting and density channels, which separates the lots, and then it is taken to raised beds to dry.
