Vanuatu has released 4 stamps on famous Tanna Coffee on 23rd March 2011. The process begins with the hand picked cherries being processed at 35 pulperies on Tanna.The cherries are pulped, naturally fermented, washed, screened and sun-dried prior to transportation to the Dry Processing Factory. Here the dry skins are removed, ‘green beans’ graded according to size and then bagged ready for shipping to Port Vila. The coffee beans are then carefully roasted as part of the 25 steps in the process from the ‘plantation to the cup’.Modern international standard packaging completes the process. Currently, all coffee is sold in roasted and packaged form through Tanna Coffee’s facility in Port Vila with 70% being distributed locally and the balance being exported overseas.
