Dynamic Cherry was lay the coffee onto the patio in thin layers (5cm) for two days before beginning the fermentation process in plastic bags. The average temperature of patio is 32° Celsius and it serves to reduce moisture levels to such an extent that water is not available to promote bacterioligical reactions, but enough to aid enzymatic reactions within the structure of the bean. In doing so, it minimize the risk of fungal developments on the cherry in the first crucial few days. The embryo continues to transform the sugars in the endosperm into less complex sugars, and thus the coffee remains "alive" for much longer. this can extend the process considerably, the longest batch of the harvest this year was three weeks.
