In addition, the farm has a rich biodiverse environment of fauna and flora, with an abundance of broad-leaved trees and conifer species. All of this together, creates for optimal coffee growing conditions. The care and processing that goes into every lot that is processed in this farm is second to none, with careful detail at every stage, starting with optimal cherry picking at the farm level all the way through carefully controlled fermentations and drying. Washed coffees are dried for between 15-20 days, honeys 20-25 days and naturals, between 25-30 days!
