MEET THE COFFEE PICKERS

Unlike grapes which ripen in bunches, coffee cherries often ripen at different times.  If coffee is irrigated to control the harvest, this can help with uniform ripening, but only a small percent of coffee is grown this way. To get high-quality, delicious coffee, the cherries are usually picked by hand. On average, a coffee picker will pick 30-50 pounds of coffee per day during harvest. (Source.)

The majority of Portland Coffee Roasters’ coffees are picked this way, in a style that’s referred to as “Selective Picking”.
