About the Process


Lekali Anaerobic Naturals: Coffee cherries were harvested in 2 days for this lot on March 14th and March 15, 2023.Coffee cherries were then weighed after the floaters and other defects were removed. After removal of the floaters and defects the coffee cherries were fermented in a sealed anaerobic condition for 110 hrs. The fermentation activity was monitored twice each day along with the temperature, the pH level , aroma of the fermentation tanks and texture of the remaining juice from the macerated coffee cherries. After 110 hrs of anaerobic fermentation, the coffee cherries were then dried on drying beds for 16 days until the desired moisture level was obtained and then stored in hermetic sealed bags.
