So great! “@timwendelboe: Update from yesterday at Finca Tamana:

Yesterday we had a meeting with the pickers at Finca Tamana to listen to their experience so far after 3 days of using the new picking techniques. Although they had gotten a lot better and the cherry selection was great, there was still some pickers who were not careful with separating the over mature cherries. Elias had also noticed that a lot of the pickers did not clean the trees completely from ripe cherries as they were worried about loosing their volume. We had to tell them that if they are more careful with separation during picking, they will spend less time sorting cherries before delivery hence get more time to pick. The pickers seemed to agree and from what I had seen that afternoon, there were already a lot of pickers who had figured this out already as they had literally no defect cherries among the ripe ones.
