Cherry is selectively handpicked and then pulped. Coffee is dry fermented for 16 to 23 hours and washed in clean water to remove any remaining mucilage. Parchment is soaked for 12 hours and then transferred to raised beds where it sundries for 14 to 21 days. As it dries, parchment is turned regularly to ensure even drying.
