Coffee processing system
The ripe fruit (cherries) are harvested over bowls and twice a day, the coffee is transported by tractors to the pulping machine, so that does not ferment. The peeled coffee is spreaded on the terrace, to dry in layers of about four inches high, and moved around twenty times a day until it reaches an ideal level of moisture. The beans are divided into numbered lots and stored separately in a suitable environment.
