Her fingers dance with such agility, incessantly moving and throwing green coffee beans to the table, while the look in her eyes never loses focus. She works diligently and carefully, selecting the perfect green coffee beans –free from flaws—and set them aside.

Harvesting time is when the collaboration between traditional manpower and hitech machines begins. Using premium world standard machinery, Pinhalase, every step of the process, from picking the beans until their packaging and delivery, is carefully monitored to obtain consistency in providing the best quality.
