Coffee processing system:
This natural coffee was selectively picked and dried on the patio for 32 days in a thick layer, being piled into a volcano at night, until reaching 11.8% humidity. Later it was stored and processed in plastic and jute bags.
Concern about quality:
The coffee was warehoused on palates in high-quality bags at a humidity between 11% and 12%.
