This Ilomba Fully washed AB blend is produced by smallholder farmers who deliver to Ilomba Best AMCOS (Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Society). Operating in the Mbozi District in Southern Tanzania, Ilomba Best AMCOS was founded in 1997 as a farmer group.
Farmers selectively handpick cherry and deliver it to Ilomba Factory. At intake, cherry is visually sorted and pulped in an eco-pulper. Coffee is wet fermented and then washed in clean water. Parchment is dried on raised beds. Workers rake parchment frequently to ensure even drying. It takes approximately 14 days for parchment to dry.
