- Natural Coffees
The cherries are scattered over a clean surface
and allowed to dry in the sun. When dry, they are
hulled and the bean is extracted. The bean is also
freed from its parchment, or endocarp. The beans
procured in this manner are termed "natural".
Wet - Coffee washing
The cherries are placed in water, after which they
are processed by a “de-pulping” and
hulling machine. The beans are then placed in fermenting
tanks to remove the remaining pulp and parchment.
This is followed by drying, either in the sun or
artificially. The beans procured in this manner
are termed "washed".
