About this coffee

Joyabaj is a community full of valleys, mountains and springs of water.

This causes the climate to be somewhat cold, meaning that the type of coffee grown in this area has different attributes depending on the soil and climate.

The harvest, collection and selection of the coffee beans are carried out by the family members of each producer.

Not all members of the communities have means of transportation to transport their coffee, so there are people in charge of transporting the coffee cherries to the Joyabaj Wet Mill.

In the Joyabaj Wet Mill, the process begins with washing the coffee cherry, followed by a selection process that eliminates subpar coffee beans.

The next step is the fermentation of the coffee with the shell, which lasts an average of 18 hours, followed by the pulping process and then the drying process in a solar dryer with African beds.

Carrying out this process takes approximately 6 days of drying, and manual movements are carried out so that the drying process is uniform.
