berries and their seeds undergo several processes before they become
the familiar roasted coffee. First, coffee berries are picked,
generally by hand. Then they are sorted by ripeness and color and the
flesh of the berry is removed, usually by machine, and the
seeds—usually called beans—are fermented to remove the slimy layer of
mucilage still present on the bean. When the fermentation is finished,
the beans are washed with large quantities of fresh water to remove the
fermentation residue, which generates massive amounts of coffee
wastewater. Finally, the seeds are dried. The best (but least utilized)
method of drying coffee is using drying tables. In this method the
pulped and fermented coffee is spread thinly on raised beds, which
allows the air to pass on all sides of the coffee; then the coffee is
mixed by hand. In this method the drying that takes place is more
uniform, and fermentation is less likely. Most African Coffee is dried
in this manner and certain coffee farms around the world are starting
to use this traditional method. Next, the coffee is sorted, and labeled
as green coffee. Another way to let the coffee beans dry is to let them
sit on a cement patio and rake over them in the sunlight. Some
companies use cylinders to pump in heated air to dry the coffee beans,
though this is generally in places where the humidity is very high.
