The Tropic Coffee company organises the farmers in the Nyamasheke area. They provide education on agricultural practices to grow high-quality coffee and preserve the pollinators that elevate their biodiversity. Bees can increase coffee yield from 36 to 50%, so the locals take good care of them.
The ripe Red Bourbon cherries are first placed in closed tanks for 24 to 72 hours for an extended fermentation. Then they are dried on African raised beds and regularly turned every 30 to 40 minutes to maintain clarity; this typically takes 20 to 30 days.
