About Anaerobic Soft Natural Processing

Soft Natural is the unique anaerobic processing method utilized by Karthikeyan Rajendran.

Step 1 - Cherries are floated and only ripe red cherries are hand selected, water is drained from the cherries for 1-2 hours.

Step 2 - Red cherries are placed into closed containers for 72 hours of anaerobic fermentation.

Step 3 - After fermenting for 3 days, the tanks are opened and the cherries are drained for 3 hours. The cherries are placed in a drying house to quickly reduce moisture levels to 11-12%. Cherries are turned every hour to promote fast and even drying.

Step 5 - After moisture levels reach 11-12% the cherries are placed in plastic bags for 3-6 weeks.

Step 6 - The cherries are finally ready to be hulled and hand picked.
