Picking coffee in its most ripened stage is an art overseen by many. Unlike other fruit, coffee cherries have little ripening leeway after it’s picked. The deterioration begins shortly after the cherry is picked off the tree, and the sugar inside becomes starch almost immediately. Ripe coffee cherries must be picked carefully without disturbing the unripe coffee beans on the branch, a critical move to ensure quality coffee production.

Hand picking the coffee beans
Our coffee beans being handpicked and only the best quality beans are selected. They are then placed in their respective gunny sacks ready for transportation.
The beans being loaded into the roaster at temperatures above 200°c. The roasting process chemically and physically changes the bean – increasing volume, losing weight and moisture content, opening cells, releasing aromatics oils, and converting starches into sugars. Each coffee bean is roasted to an optimal level that accentuates its best characteristics to give a balance aroma, flavor, aftertaste, acidity and body.
