Ripe, red coffee cherries are harvested daily during the harvest season and taken to Ibanda. The cherries are weighed and assessed for quality. From here trucks carry the cherries to the coffee station where the cherries are floated and graded before being sun-dried. The cherries are turned several times each day to ensure even drying whilst allowing the cherries to mature and develop their full rich flavours.
