Step 1 - Cherries are floated and only ripe red cherries are hand selected, water is drained from the cherries for 1-2 hours.
Step 2 - Premier Cuvée yeast is inoculated in the coffee cherry juice that is generated from the pulping of the coffees.
Step 3 - The inoculated coffee juice is sprayed over the ripe red coffee cherries and then placed in sealed stainless steel tanks for 22 days under 1.2 bar pressure of CO2.
Step 4 - After fermenting for 22 days, the tanks are opened and the cherries are drained for 3 hours. The cherries are placed in a drying house to quickly reduce moisture levels to 11-12%. Cherries are turned every hour to promote fast and even drying.
Step 5 - After moisture levels reach 11-12% the cherries are placed in plastic bags for 3-6 weeks.
Step 6 - The cherries are finally ready to be hulled and hand picked.
