Before being exported, parchment coffee is processed in the following manner: hulling, polishing, grading and sorting.
Hulling wet processed coffee refers to removes the parchment layer (endocarp). Hulling dry processed coffee refers to removing the entire dried husk of the dried cherries.
Polishing is an optional process where any silver skin that remains on the beans after hulling is removed by machine. Grading and sorting is done by size and weight, and beans are also reviewed for color flaws or other imperfections.
Finally, beans that are unsatisfactory due to deficiencies are removed either by hand or by machinery. In many countries, this process is done both by machine and by hand, ensuring that only the finest quality coffee beans are exported.
