Six months ago the coffee bushes had their main flush of flowers, it was St Patricks day. This was early for flowering here and accordingly we are getting our first coffee early too. We are honey processing our coffee this year. Today, we inspected progress in the drying room. One tray had turned the magic color of green that indicates just 11.5% moisture. This first batch has been drying for around two weeks and tomorrow morning early, before the temperatures rise we will be bagging it for storage.
