Ripe, red cherry is selectively handpicked by producers. Since farms are small, most labor is done by the family, but some seasonal laborers may be hired to help harvest only ripe cherry. Coffee is typically processed on the farm. Ripe cherry is pulped, typically on a drum pulper, and placed in bags or buckets to ferment. Fermentation time varies according to temperature and altitude but producers typically ferment coffee until mucilage can be easily removed. Parchment is then washed in clean water and laid on patios or parabolic beds to sun-dry. Parchment is turned frequently to ensure even drying.
