Carmela carefully hand-picked this coffee and delivered it to the Buena Vista washing station via taxi. This meticulously run washing station is owned by Agricafe, who painstakingly process each of the exceptional specialty lots they receive separately, allowing for full traceability back to the individual farmer or colony.

After being picked and weighed this coffee was carefully washed and laid out to dry on raised African beds, and turned every hour. After about one week on the raised bed, the coffee was placed in a coco dryer. The coffee then sits in the large steel vats for around 35 hours at temperatures no higher than 40 ˚C and is turned every 30 minutes.
