Once the cherries has been picked, processing must begin as quickly as possible to prevent fruit spoilage. Coffee is processed in one of two ways: dry and wet method.
Dry method is referred to as unwashed coffee. In this easy method, cherries are simply dried on large surfaces in the fresh air for three weeks to a month.
Wet method involves removing the seed and washing off any residual fruit flesh before drying and milling the beans. This takes more time and investment, but intensifies aromatic flavours and reduces any bitterness.
Then the beans are separated by weight as they pass through water channels. After separation, the beans are transported to fermentation tanks.
