Wadi Al Salaw is the location of our biggest drying centre in Haraz. It has a processing capacity of 400 tons per season of fresh coffee cherries (equivalent to 400kg per day). Located at more that 1870 meters above sea level, the area has fluctuating temperatures reaching around 20ºC and dropping to 2ºC during the harvesting season. Such fluctuations combined with the constant fog and rain have resulted in a relatively long drying period which in turn has helped the coffee develop a very high sugar content.
