Goulala farmer group is part of the larger Goulala village community, located northeast of Letefoho town.  The group is led by Manuel da Costa Silva who also is a lead field officer coordinating cherry delivery to the Lutlala processing station.   Manuel is the elder statesman of coffee cultivation & processing knowledge in Letefoho and a leader in the community.  His experience extends back decades and includes work in the island of Flores, Indonesia, where he learned pruning and fertilization techniques.  His farm is a model farm for others in the area, and his experience is a great resource for other farmers. 

Village lots are processed to dry parchment at the individual farmer level.  Each family harvests and processes their own cherry, utilizing traditional locally made gum-wood and hammered tin pulpers, fermenting in buckets or bags for 36 hours, and drying on tarpaulins.  The Goulala group has 23 members and their households.  Coffee is the primary source of income for the year, often supplemented by local sale of vegetables such as beans, corn, garlic, and greens.
