Processing at the Guchienda Estate Wet Mill adheres to stringent, quality-driven methods. After the ripe cherry is delivered to the processing area, it undergoes meticulous sorting to ensure an exceptional, consistent cup right at the start of processing. Once pulped, cherries are delivered to fermentation tanks, where they ferment for about 24-36 hours depending on the ambient temperature of the season. The coffee is then fully washed to remove traces of all mucilage. The parchment* is then distributed on raised drying beds, where it will dry slowly over the course of around 12-20 days. The parchment is covered during peak temperatures and sun exposure to avoid quality degradation.
