ABOUT UMI AMCOS
The Umi AMCOS is located near the village of Itepula, in the Mbozi district of the
Songwe region in Tanzania. Representing the local smallholder producers that
deliver fresh cherries during the harvest season, Umi was created in 2014 and
produces fully washed coffees.
ABOUT THE WASHED PROCESS
The Coffee beans are extracted from the coffee cherries and then graded using channels. The beans are then fermented for 18 - 36 hours before being washed. The coffee is then soaked for 8 - 12 hours and then placed on raised beds for 8 - 14 days to dry. The drying beds are continuously moved to ensure uniform drying throughout the lot. The leftover pulp is then given back to the farmers to be used as fertilizer.
