COFFEE PRODUCTION IN AL SANA'A, YEMEN
This lot is a collection of 50 farmers from the Al Sanaa village.
The temperature ranges between 9 to 25 Celsius with sun exposure lasting 8 hours per day.
This anaerobic process was achieved through bag fermentation. After the coffee cherries were picked, they were washed and placed in Ecotact bags for 72 hours maintaining a PH level of 3.6. The cherries were then placed on raised beds (15kgs on each bed at a time) and left to dry between 14 to 20 days.
