Micro-organism Fermentation:

After harvesting and de-pulping Catuai cherries, they are fermented in ceramic tanks in a liquid known as “mosto”, for 18-24 hrs. Mosto is the leftover liquid from an anaerobically-fermented coffee; this liquid is rich in yeasts in bacteria, which help kick start the fermentation process for the freshly harvested Catuai.

After fermentation, the coffee is fully washed with spring water, then dried on raised beds or concrete patio, depending on weather conditions.
