Roaster's Notes

This lot comprises coffee cherries delivered by more than 3500 female smallholder farmers, members of SOPACDI, who live in the Kalehe territory of DR Congo's South Kivu province. The average farm size of these women is 0.7 hectares, and they grow Bourbon and other varieties of coffee in loam soil. 

The women deliver their coffee in cherry form and it is processed at the coop’s wet mill. First it gets de-pulped and fermented for 12 hours in tanks, then washed and sorted in water channels, before being placed underwater and fermented again for another 12 hours. It is then dried on raised beds, under a shade cover of netting. The drying process takes 16–25 days on average.
