The first step of the process is the seed breeding station that is where the life of a new plant begins.
The seed are planted in individual bags called the almacigos and are placed under natural shade. In this stage they are carefully inspected for a year until they are taken to the fields.
The coffee flowering takes place during January through March. Flowering lasts for two or three days. The coffee beans will come out six months later from the flowers.
