The Harvest is done over cloths in order to avoid the beans coming into contact with the ground, preserving its quality. On the same day, the coffee is transported to the processing center; after being processed, the beans are dried in cement patios under the sun and then go to a dryer for a final drying phase. After that, the coffee is deposited in the warehouse of COCARIVE which gives member support through all stages of production.
