The beans are required to be light in color, tender, and have a short cooking time without soaking. If the beans meet our standards, they are cleaned to the greatest degree possible using the most modern of techniques. The cleaning process is not just a single step, but rather a number of sequences designed to remove all dirt, rocks, stems, leaves, and cracked or split beans as efficiently as possible. Finally, the beans are ready to be packed and shipped to a fine supermarket near you.
