Well ripe coffee cherries are pulped within 12 hours from the time of picking. Immediately after pulping, the parchment coffee is soaked in clean water for 12 hours. Then, the parchment coffee is washed and water is changed to prevent over fermentation. Finally, the coffee is soaked for another 12 hours for the final stage of fermentation. In total, after 24 hours the coffee is fully washed with clean water and graded for the final stage of skin drying under shade followed by drying under sun on raised african coffee drying beds.
