 The ripe cherries were picked and randomly selected to be tested with the refractometer.  The selected cherries had Brix sugar level of over 21%. In the wet mill the cherries were left in the receiver tank for 40 hours after which they were pulped immediately and went to the float tank to remove any sub-quality beans.  The remaining beans were then fermented for an additional 18 hours in stainless steel tank.  They were washed twice and sent to the drying tables.  When the beans shows a moisture level of 19-20% they were finished in the mechanical dryer to a final moisture level of 10.5%-11%. At the dry mill the parchment went through dry mill process and was finished with hand picking before packed in GrainPro bags and put into jute bags for shipping.
