Coffee is the main cash crop in this area, though many other crops grow here such as sugar cane, false banana, spices and vegetables.

The coffee is rotated every 30 minutes for even dryness and to control the fermentation process. The average drying time takes about 12-15 days based on the temperature and humidity. Then the dried cherries are stored in warehouses for flavour development.
