It begins with the first selective cut (applying two cuts in the harvest, obtaining only cherries at their optimum point of maturity), transferring the coffee to the back of the mule beasts, from the farm to the community in a time of 1 hour.
Immediately the coffee goes through the siphoning, pulping and aerobic fermentation reached in a time of 12 hours (depending on the weather), then it is necessary to remove the mucilage with clean water until it is completely released from the parchment, and subsequently the washed coffee, let stand in clean, cold water for 9 hours; The drying is carried out in ecological beds and inside the solar dryer, thus avoiding the contact of animals or other contamination.
In the drying process of parchment coffee, it moves constantly every half hour in hottest hours of the day (from 12 to 15 pm of the day), so that the grain quickly loses moisture.
Coffee rises and is stored when it reaches 11.5 to 12% humidity
Parchment packaging is done in plastic bags inside jute sacks, placed on wooden pallets in the region, in a place next to the house.
The labor used in the harvest stage is foreign, brought from the Mountain region (8 workers), the contracted time is 4 weeks.
