Ripe coffee cherry is in the hopper ready for pulping.

After the pulp is removed, it is used to make compost for the coffee trees. The cherry pulp contains the nutrients coffee trees need to stay healthy and productive.

The outside fruit or pulp is mechanically removed from the coffee bean.

After pulping, the cherry, now called parchment, is soaked in fresh clean water to breakdown the mucilage. A sticky sweet pectin coating on the parchment that is the fermentation catalyst for the bean. Washing this mucilage off of the parchment after fermentation could take up to 70 litres of water per kilo of parchment, but our eco friendly washing station is designed to use only 15 to 20 litres only per kilo of parchment.

The fully washed coffee parchment is immediately placed on raised drying beds outside and inside a covered greenhouse until the bean moisture content is around 11% (+/- 1)
