Roaster's note:

All of these farmers are trained in agronomy and post-harvest practices by the "King of Guji", Ture Waji, who is also managing the dry mills in the area. Here lots are tagged and separated and recorded with the start date of drying. Moisture content changes are recorded daily to ensure even and effective drying, in turn ensuring the long-term quality of the lots."
