 The Rurira coffee grows between the soybeans, bananas and Grevirea. The coffee is picked by a group of 210 farmers.  On average each farmer has 300 trees. After picking the red cherries, the fruit is brought to the wet mill the same day.  There the coffee is washed and fermented in water tanks between 14 and 16 hours. The parchment is then dried for 10 to 14 days, depending on the weather.  The wet mill has 200 drying beds and store the coffee in a ventilated warehouse.
