Rosendo Melgar"It is the second time I participate; I did well in 2004 and I was encouraged to keep on working and competing. I went to ask about the requirements in Caranavi with the organizers and I subscribed myself to the contest." "There is no doubt that this year the quality of my coffee is better than in 2004. It is tedious, but it gives good satisfactions. Thank God I did not have any incidents for competing. " "I hope that my coffee grower partners are encouraged to produce more coffee. This is a good way of improving and keep on working for us and for the country." Quality Practices The ripe coffee cherry harvest is done manually and at the end of the afternoon all the collected coffee goes to the processing plant of Agricabv, where it is processed. It first goes under the quality control where all the ripe cherry that arrives is revised, then this ripe cherry is put in the reception bin which then goes to the pulpers. The de-pulped coffee then goes into the fermentation piles, and when it reaches its optimum point, it is washed. The drying is done in a mechanical drum dryer run on propane gas, and once it reaches the 12% of humidity, the coffee is once again selected.
