Process & Harvest

Fully washed and patio-dried coffee offers a pristine taste profile with enhanced clarity and pronounced flavors. This meticulous process begins with washing the beans to remove the cherry and mucilage, resulting in a cleaner cup with bright acidity. After washing, the beans are spread on large patios, where they are sun-dried to achieve the perfect moisture content. This traditional drying method contributes to a consistent and high-quality brew, highlighting the bean's natural characteristics.
