All producers are smallholders who own less than 250 trees. Each tree produces an average of 1.5kg of coffee per year, meaning they end up selling up to 200-300kg each year.

Each washing station is managed and led by an agronomist. This agronomist collaborates with the producers determining and implementing the practices nest suited to the specific growing conditions of their farming plots and give the producers organic fertilizers. 

All cherries are floated in small buckets (the unripe cherries are sold as 8-quality cherry), and then higher quality cherries are sorted again by hand to remove all damaged. underripe, and overripe cherries. After sorting, the cherry is pulped within 6 hours of delivery. The coffee is dry fermented for up to 12 hours and then washed in clean mountain water for 12 to 24 hours. Parchment is then soaked for an additional 12 to 18 hours before being dried on raised beds for 2 to 3 weeks.
