Before picking the cherries on her farm, Claudia measures the brix of the ripe cherries to make sure that they have an appropriate amount of sugar. The cherries are then floated to remove any defects before being depulped. The pulped coffee is fermented for 40 hours and then fully washed. Finally, the coffee is moved to the drying area where it dries for 18–20 days until it reaches the target humidity. Finca Las Nubes gets mild temperatures around 18–21° C during the day, with cooler temperatures at 10–12° C at night. The property's main building includes a drying space under its roof, as well as a water collection system that stores rainwater in a subterranean tank for daily duties and coffee processing.
