The pickers collect the cherries at the optimal ripeness point, then each batch is put in water to ensure that any underripe beans have a chance to float to the surface.
Selected best cherries get depulped (the skin is taken off) and fermented for 36 hours in water.
After that, the coffee is washed with fresh water and moved for drying in “Marquesinas” for 3 days, and then the drying is finished up in silos until the beans get to 10-12% moisture level.
