La Bastilla’s staff diligently selects only the ripest coffee cherries for Natural (dry) processing. This requires planning since drying naturals is a slow process. Coffee cherries are dried whole, without removing any of the fruit. During this stage, the coffee is turned regularly to increase airflow, support even drying, and prevent spoilage.
After the cherries have been dried, the seeds (or coffee beans) are removed from the fruit and prepared for export. The team at La Bastilla strives for strong berry notes and uses a proprietary process that is a "trade secret" of the La Bastilla mill.
