For this Washed Red Bourbon lot, the farmers bring their coffee cherries to the station, where they are hand sorted and separated. Only the ripe cherries are mechanically de-pulped. In concrete tanks, the coffee seeds get wet fermented for 12-18 hours. After this fermentation, coffee is thoroughly washed in concrete channels to remove any remaining mucilage. Then it rests on raised African beds where it is turned regularly every hour under the full sun for the first five days. Drying generally takes 12-21 days for the coffee to get down to the desired humidity percentage.
