After harvesting all the coffee is delivered to the factory and undergoes the wet processing method. Water is pumped using a Diesel engine from Dam reservoir to the reservoir tanks for pulping and recycling.

The parchment is then frequently turned on the drying tables, sorted and stored awaiting delivery to the dry mill.
