The cooperative has a total of 1835 members, of which 1,553 are active farmers. The management is in the hands of 5 members. During harvest, the farmers selectively hand-pick the ripest, reddest cherries, which are then delivered to the cooperative's wet mill the same day. The cherries are sorted by hand before pulping, where damaged and unripe cherries are separated and processed separately according to quality. After pulping, the green beans are fermented for between 12 - 16 hours and then washed in clean, fresh river water to remove any remaining traces of mucilage before being passed through sorting channels to dry on raised beds. When it reaches optimum moisture, it is transported for sieve sorting before being taken to the warehouse for storage and distribution.
