Coffee is picked and brought to the Kinini washing station where it is separated from the other lots to be processed.
The cherry must be delivered by 4pm on the day of picking and infrastructure has been built in order to make this easier. As the washing station grows, raised beds have expanded allowing the cherry to be spread out and dried for 48 days at a depth of two inches, turning regularly to avoid over fermentation and allow even drying throughout the crop.
Each raised bed comes with its own marker to ensure microlot traceability and yellow tarpaulin for quick covering in case of rain.
