Rob Says: Since a couple years, a lot more focus is being put on how to limit potato taste defect in the cup. Since it is generally accepted that a strong selection drastically reduces the number of affected beans, washing stations all across the country focus on better selection methods. A campaign was launched from the national coffee institute as well to encourage producers to float their cherries in the river before they bring it to the washing station. This has motivated producers to select their cherries on maturity and through flotation before they make the journey to the closest washing station. This way, they meet Greenco’s quality standard and they can benefit from their good cherry price which sits above the national minimum.

WE EXPECT TO START ROASTING THIS LOT THE FIRST WEEKS OF DECEMBER 2017
