In the natural process, coffee cherries are carefully handpicked when fully ripe. They are then spread out to dry in the sun or on raised beds, allowing the fruit to dry around the coffee bean. This extended contact with the fruit imparts a distinct sweetness and fruity flavour to the coffee, often presenting notes of berries, tropical fruits, and wine-like characteristics.
