"This coffee was produced by the Akusi Farmers Co-operative Society. Co-op members selectively hand pick their cherry and deliver it to the wet mill the same day it’s harvested. Red, ripe cherries are separated from under-ripes, over-ripes and any foreign matter. The wet-milling process utilizes clean river water, which is re-circulated before it’s disposed of in seepage pits. Before the coffee is delivered to the dry mill for secondary processing, it’s dried in the sun on traditional raised beds.
Because of the dry weather during the second half of the growing season, and coffee being on the tree quite late, the fruit was a little more sweet, resulting in even better cups."
