“It’s finally harvest time!
The coffee cherries are ready to be picked and the workers ready to get started. We started on Tuesday (06/03) with a beautiful day and no rain to stop us.
Our coffee is hand picked, in a process we call coffee stripping. This process consists in removing all the fruit from a branch at one time. For that, we place under the coffee plants a big bag to hold all the fruit that will fall. After finished with a couple of coffee plants, the worker will pick through those fruit taking out the leaves, impurities and under-ripe cherries.
At the end of the day we had a truck full of coffee cherries (and that’s just the beginning)!”
