Arabica Coffee Farming Smart Globe International, LLC is launching the development of a 200-hectare Arabica coffee farm in the Northwest province of Cameroon. By 2020, our sustainable organic farm in this high altitude region is expected to produce about 330 tons of green Arabica coffee beans per year. The harvested coffee cherries will be processed using the wet method, which involves fermenting and depulping the beans. Then the beans will be naturally dried under the sun. Cocoa Farming We are also launching the development of a 200-hectare cocoa farm in the Mbam region, which is located in the center of Cameroon. By 2020, our sustainable organic farm is expected to produce about 220 tons of dry cocoa beans per year. The harvested cocoa product will be fermented using the box method, then naturally dried under the sun. The box method of fermenting cocoa beans involves spreading the beans in a wooden box and covering them with banana leaves. Holes puncuate the bottom of the box which allows the moisture to seep out before being dried.
