Process - Fully washed. What exactly does this mean? A washed processing of green bean is a process that is used to remove the fruit part from the coffee bean through various stages leaving a very clean tasting coffee which can enhance the origins true tasting notes. The general stages of this method are :

  1. Sorting - after the coffee cherries are harvested the producers will process these by removing any cherries with visible defects or are unripe.
  2. Pulping - here the pulp of the coffee (the skin of the cherry) is removed usually from a depulper machine.
  3. Fermentation - a very important stage where the coffee is fermented usually between 18-24 hours (though times to vary) in large fermentation tanks. During this process the microorganisms in the beans create the enzymes responsible for breaking down the mucilage.
  4. Drying - producers then will dry out the coffee in the sun for anywhere between one - two days then will mechanically dry them to ensure consistency of quality and this will also dramatically reduce energy costs.
