Elkin has a very strict cherry selection criteria on his farm, once the cherries are picked he uses the washed process method. After screening, only the ripe cherries are allowed into the de-pulping machine. The fermentation process period takes roughly 36 hours. After fermentation, the coffee is washed and sun-dried on patios and drying beds until 11% humidity, then a coffee sample is taken to the Lab.
