This offering is a natural processed coffee where the coffee cherries are floated and hand-sorted before being taken straight to the drying tables. The whole coffee cherry spends between twenty-five to thirty days drying in its skin, slowly turning from deep red to a prune-like purple-black colour when fully dry.
Bukeye was the first washing station built by the Long Mile Coffee Project in January of 2013, and has become a place of innovation since its opening. It was here that their coffee scout program was piloted. The Coffee Scouts, together with a team of agronomists, have been pivotal in increasing the quality of coffee through innovative methods and programs. The washing station has been the launching pad for an extensive organic pesticide program targeting antestia (the colourful bug linked to the potato defect), post-harvest pruning, mulching and fertilising campaigns.
During the peak of harvest, farmers bring their cherries to the station and each person's contribution is recorded using the Long Mile farmer card system. This system ensures that Long Mile can trace the coffee and the farmers who grew it right down to the hill.

WIDE OPEN ROAD is more than a song title, it’s a mood, a state of mind, it conjures a narrative and story of how the Brunswick based roastery want to travel through the world. To this day that narrative drives their decisions, it directs them as they navigate all the changes, the hardships and the joys that come with building something that you care about, something you hope other like minded souls will get on board with and add their creative energy to, a community of people who love to see things transformed and help to grow what is essentially an intangible idea, a Wide Open Road.
