Timely and selective hand picking is carried out in each wet mill. Cherry is delivered to wet mill the same day it is picked and cherry sorting is carried out at the wet mill prior to the pulping. Red ripe cherries are separated from underipes, overipes and foreign matter. Processing utilizes clean river water (wet processing) that is recirculated before disposal into adequate lagoons. Sun drying is done before delivery of the coffee to the dry mill for secondary processing.
