M14 is a natural process called Intrinsic Cherry, "In this fermentation, we take a more raw approach. After harvesting the cherries, we leave them in the bags they came in. This is so the natural bacteria and yeast that the cherries have is kept at a maximum and we are able to create a fermentation that allows the unique characteristics of each farm to shine. This process can last from 12 hours to 72. It is an aerobic fermentation and with the presence of light. It takes place under our climatic conditions, in the case of CCD the average temperatures for this season are 30º C. After the fermentation, we dry the coffee on the patio or on African beds."
