Our farmer grows his black pepper alongside Ceylon cinnamon in the central hills of Sri Lanka. During the harvesting season between June and August every year, he watches for the berries to start ripening and turning red. This is how he knows it's time to send the pickers up ladders to handpick the berries individually.
Once harvested, the crop is sorted, cleaned and laid out to dry in the intense tropical sun. Basking in the heat, the berries turn dark brown and gain its signature wrinkles, sealing in the flavors.
