Farmers selectively hand pick red ripe cherries that are delivered for wet milling the same day. The parchment is then fermented, washed and sun dried . Dry parchment is milled and bagged at Kofinaf mills, marketed by SMS Ltd. The coffee is then sold either through the Nairobi auction or direct to overseas buyers.
