AA Kiungu

 

Timely and selective hand picking is carried out in Kiungu. Cherry is delivered to wet mill the same day it is picked. Cherry sorting is carried out at the wet mill prior to the pulping.

Red ripe cherries are separated from underipes, overipes and foreign matter. Processing utilizes clean water (wet processing) that is recirculated before disposal into seepage pits. Sun drying on raised tables is done before delivery of the coffee to the dry mill for secondary processing.
