It is as usual a washed process coffee where it is depulped and then sorted into 3 grades based on the bean density. 

The coffee is dry fermented in large tanks for about 24 hours until the remaining mucilage is loose and then washed again in channels to remove the mucilage and sort the ‘floaters’ or underdeveloped light beans from the rest. The beans in their parchment are then fed into a soak tank filled with cold water for 24 hours. This is said to develop the amino acids in the beans and contribute to that Kenyan flavour profile that we love. Finally the parchment is dried on raised beds (for good airflow) in the sun for 11 - 14 days and rested for some weeks after that.
