This coffee is a slightly different take on the washed process. Cherries picked by a strict ripeness criteria were fermented for 25 hours inside grain pro bags then pulped and fermentation was continued with the fruit together without water for 24 hours. The coffee was then washed and placed on raised beds to reach its ideal moisture content. This version of washed coffee uses up to 90% less water than the usual washed coffee process.
