Bourbon coffee cherries are collected on a weekly basis from a farm which stands at an altitude of 2250 meters above sea level. The cherries are transported to our drying centre where they are naturally dried using a sun exposure of 7 hours per day. They are then covered to protect them from the cooler night temperature of 6ºC.
Yellow Bourbon coffee is quite rare in this region but holds unique and complex flavours which gives this coffee its great taste.
