You can find two methods for processing the harvested beans. First could be the dry milling which simply involves drying the complete cherry beans soon after harvest. They're left to dry beneath the sun until they attain a moisture amount of 10 to 12%. This technique is backbreaking since it requires raking the beans many times through the day until they're dry. Once the husks become dried-up, they're hulled either manually or mechanically. This technique usually generates inferior beans.
The 2nd and preferred method could be the wet process or wet milling. The pulp or the flesh is taken off the berries without drying them first. This leaves you with 1 or 2 seeds. They are then soaked in water so that you can two days. This fermentation stage is to help remove any residues and something that floats is applied for since it won't come out good coffee.
