The cherry coffee is taken to 50 kg bags to initiate an anaerobic fermentation for 30 hours at an average temperature of 16 and 20°C (64 and 68°F). The coffee is transferred to tanks immersed in water at 45°C, adding leachate from the previous harvest and recirculating the leachate for 18 hours. Drying begins in canopies at a maximum temperature of 32°C. The drying process is interrupted at 18% humidity and the coffee is transferred to black bags in a cellar without light and left to rest for 60 hours before continuing with the drying process until 11% humidity of the kernels is obtained.
