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.
Learn about these methods and more (such as coffee cupping) in our free coffee classes.

OCM (OnCoffeeMakers.com) was started in 2007 with the first webpage about coffee machines. And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that! So, if you are looking for coffee machines for office or restaurants - check out the link).
In 2010, we started getting enquiries on restaurant marketing and we start to help food and beverage brands with their marketing. Below are campaigns and events that we have done over the years:
OCM's campaigns: F&B Marketing Ideas by OCM
OCM's Events: F&B Industry events by or with OCM
Check out this restaurant marketing guide to learn more about the many campaigns and companies we have worked with.
Since then, we have also created many marketing workshops and classes for the F&B industry. Many of these modules are still running in tertiary institutions such as Temasek Polytechnic Skillsfuture Academy and also ITE College East COC classes, below are some snippets of our lectures and workshops:
