<BR>The Q graders in our cupping lab scored this coffee 87.5.<BR><br>This coffee was produced by the Akusi Farmers Co-operative Society, which has approximately 600 members. The average farm size is less than half a hectare, or about one acre. Co-op members selectively hand pick their cherry and deliver it to the wet mill the same day it’s harvested. Red, ripe cherries are separated from under-ripes, over-ripes and any foreign matter. The wet-milling process utilizes clean river water, which is re-circulated before it’s disposed of in seepage pits. Before the coffee is delivered to the dry mill for secondary processing, it’s dried in the sun on traditional raised beds.
