The coffee is picked by hand when the cherries have a high degree of ripeness between 19 and 23 degrees
Brix. The coffee is transported from the field to the wet mill in small plastic boxes so that the coffee cherry
does not break. Subsequently, the macerated cherries are transferred to the dry mill of Sajonia Estate Coffee
in plastic boxes. In the dry mill, the coffee is placed on African beds directly in the sun for 8 hours to lower
the degree of humidity. Subsequently, the cherries are dried slowly for 28-30 days in shaded African beds in
saran tunnels with a shade percentage of 80%.
