About: This exceptional lot originates from over 450 farmers residing in the Yirgacheffe, Aricha district. The journey of these cherries begins with the farmers delivering ripe fruit to the Gizat washing station. Here, a meticulous process unfolds: cherries are sorted into grades using density channels, undergo a 36-72 hour fermentation, are carefully washed, floated for defect inspection, and then find their place on raised drying tables for 8-15 days, or until the moisture content reaches the desired 11.5%. 

Crafted with precision, the African raised beds are designed to facilitate optimal air circulation and temperature control, ensuring a consistent and ideal drying process. Regular turning of the cherries prevents damage from over-fermentation or mold growth. 

Post-drying, the cherries, now at a moisture level of 11.5-12%, are stored in a local warehouse. Further processing, involving color, density, and screen size sorting, takes place before the final milling, preparing them for export. This journey underscores the dedication to quality that characterizes each step of this coffee's production.
