MEET THE COFFEE PRUNERS

Pruning is critical for higher yields and maintaining the health of the trees. Pruning also helps limit the height of the trees, making it easier to hand-pick the coffee cherries when the time comes. The second pruning of the season, called “handling”, opens up the tree by reducing the amount of foliage and encouraging the tree to concentrate its energy into swelling of the beans.

Finally, pruning is frequently about removing the secondary growth that we don’t want to keep for the following year. For the secondary pruning, pruners use hands to take off the light secondary materials. Pruning by hand is gentle on the tree, and you can make sure none of the precious coffee beans are knocked off at this early stage.
