How raw coffee cherries are processed before roasting?

Ripe coffee cherries are plucked from the tree, either by machine or hand, and within a day moved into either wet, dry, or mechanical processing methods. 

During the Wet Processing Method, a pulping machine is used to separate the cherry’s pulp from the coffee seed. Once separated, the seeds are then soaked in water to remove the sticky mucilage coatings and the seeds are then rinsed and dried.

For the dry, water-free fermentation where the seeds also sit in tanks or buckets and are left under the sun without the aid of water. 

The mechanical method uses a special machine to buff the mucilage from the seed. which greatly reduces the amount of icky wasted water as well as better production yield.
