To process the coffee, pickers are hired and trained to cut only ripe cherries; then, the coffee is pulped and processed at their mill and then transported to patios or African dryers, where the coffee is slowly dried in the sun to ensure quality.  


The by-products generated during the wet process (mucilage and pulp) are treated and processed to be used as organic fertilizers and nutrient-rich foliar sprays.
