In The Cup Expect: Comforting taste of Early Gray & Black Cherry
Thanks to the Bashasha Project, producer Mohhamed Hai Aba Simmel has been able to export and sell his coffee under his own name. While higher prices are a definite incentive for increasing quality, Mohhamed, like many others, is motivated by pride in his coffee and in his country’s role as producers—and consumers—of high-quality coffees.
After selective handpicking, Mohhamed lays his cherry to sundry on raised drying beds. He turns them repeatedly throughout the day to ensure even drying. Cherry dries for approximately 15 to 20 days, depending on the weather.
