Kilenso Natural is a sundried version of one of our favorites. Raised drying beds are designed to ensure proper air flow and temperature control for an ideal drying process. Cherries are turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage during the drying process. The cherries are stored in a warehouse after the moisture is reduced to less than 12 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa to be milled and prepared for export. Slotting in to replace the Gerbicho Rogicha we were carrying, look for a similar profile. Berries at the forefront, big body like a Cadillac, super sweet maraschino cherry to finish it off.
