This lot is named « Odaco » after the Odako tree, under which the SHANTAWENE community resolves local conflicts.
Sourced from 563 Daye Bensa farmers, it undergoes rigorous sorting and careful drying. As soon as the cherries are received, they get sorted by floating and hand sorted to remove the underripe cherries. They are then dried on african beds for 13-15 days. During this time, one person is assigned to a drying bed to rotate the cherries every 15 minutes to ensure uniformity of drying. Traceability is paramount at Daye Bensa, with detailed records kept throughout a lot’s journey. Daye Bensa's community focus extends to rewarding farmers and workers, and supporting local students with school materials. It's a story of quality, unity, and giving back.
