Roaster's note: 

The perfectly ripe cherries are harvested by hand by our expert team. Cherries then enter a classifier that selects the cherries by size, and from there they pass into an optical classifier that further selects cherries by the perfect ripeness color. The selected cherries by size and color then start their controlled fermentation period of anaerobic fermentation for 36 hours. Then the cherries are pulped and the next period of anaerobic fermentation in mucilage begins for a 60 hour period. When the second fermentation period is completed, the coffee is lightly rinsed and placed in a special fiber sack and they are hung to allow excess mucilage to "drip" out of the sacks. The coffee then is placed in the pre-drying deck for a period of 20 hours to begin its dehydration phase. When it reaches 20% humidity it is then placed in raised bed for its period of slow, natural drying until it reaches 11% humidity.

Brewing Tips:

This would be a lovely V60. I would brew it with 20g coffee and 300ml of water.  Not sure if that helps.
