*Field Notes are posts made from notes I record in the field while visiting coffeelands. The are often raw, unpolished, even scatter-brained. They are intended to 1) allow the reader to follow along in the journey and 2) allow me to archive my notes to the web.

By 9a had baskets and buckets cleaned from yesterday's work. Last night's fermentation buckets at 4.4 pH (local water base pH 9.9! with TDS of 33 ppm). Could still feel a bit of mucilage. Triple-cleaned beans post fermentation and set to dry. Tough work bent over the wheelbarrow and moving water before and after washing.
