Drying of coffee at Chiliarch Coffee Estate

Organically Cultivated
Environmentally Conscious

We cultivate and grow our coffee organically in an environmentally sustainable way. Our coffee cherries are all hand harvested and undergo meticulous processing, including the Washed, Natural, and Honey Methods, yielding Specialty-Grade Arabica beans renowned for their exceptional quality.

Coffee Processing

Coffee processing is a very important part of what we do at Chiliarch. Besides the traditional Washed, Natural and Honey methods which we use, we often experiment different other new methods to discover new and different profile of our beans.

Washed Process

As the cherries turn red and ripe, they are handpicked and put through a pulping process. The cherry skin mechanically, leaving the seeds with the mucilage intact on the parchments. The seeds are then placed in water to naturally ferment and remove the remaining mucilage left on the seed. Once fermented, the seeds go through a vigorous second wash, and any leftover mucilage is removed. Thereafter, they are sent to the drying stage. This washed process is known to give the coffee distinct and light-tasting notes.

Natural Process

Cherries are picked at the perfect point of ripeness. They are put to dry on raised covered beds for about three weeks to allow the seed to soak all the natural sugars in its cherry. This fermentation process draws out wildly rich flavours and aromas ranging from lychee to a strawberry jam in the beans.

Honey Process

Once the cherry skin has been removed, the mucilage is left on the seed to dry. The mucilage has a sticky texture and a golden amber color that looks somewhat like honey. Our Honey Process uses a combination of washed and natural techniques. The mucilage is dried on the seed and mechanically removed without water. This process disseminates distinctive flavors and aromas into the coffee. The exquisite aromas and flavors of this coffee are formed during the fermentation of sugars and pectin from the mucilage.
