Named after its host village, Raro is a washing station located in Guji, Uraga. It sits at 1900 – 2100 masl, on a small hill with optimal sunlight exposure, cold winds, and rich, fertile, red soil. The station buys cherries from around 400 neighbouring farmers, who deliver their cherries at mid-day and sort them until the late afternoon.
The cherries that contributed to this lot were harvested by hand and selectively sorted to separate only the red cherries. These cherries have been harvested by hand, and selectively sorted to separate the ripened, red cherries. They are then packed tightly inside large plastic barrels where an airlock system prevents oxygen from entering. After 144 hours in barrels, the coffee is removed and laid out on 120 raised beds with the cherry still intact. It is dried slowly over the course of 2-3 weeks.
