Coffee Fruit Wet Processing

Coffee Fruit Wet Processing

These are raw coffee fruit going through the wet processing method which is the first step in extracting the coffee bean from the fruit. Bad or unripe fruit will float and the good ripe fruit will sink. The skin of the cherry and some of the pulp is removed by pressing the fruit through this hand-crank machine in water. The bean will still have a significant amount of the pulp clinging to it that needs to be removed in a later step.
