Guillermo has a very strict cherry selection criteria on his farm, once the cherries are picked Guillermo uses the washed or natural process method. After screening, only the ripe cherries are allowed into the de-pulping machine. The fermentation process period takes roughly 24 hours. After fermentation, the coffee is washed and sun dried on patios and drying beds until 11% of humidity, then a coffee sample is taken to the Lab.

Parchment coffee is packaged and stored in the farm until lab results are available and price is agreed
