The natural way of green coffee processing originated in Africa and is considered one of the oldest. In addition, the natural method of extracting grain from the berry is the friendliest to nature, because the production process uses a minimum amount of water resources.
After harvesting, the berries are washed and cleaned of fluorides. The most ripe and high-quality cherries are sent to the patio, where they are evenly laid out for drying, regularly mixed and calibrated. Special drying canopies are used for drying - the so-called "African beds".
Natural treatment lasts about 3-4 weeks and is one of the longest methods. The coffee is dried until the skin of the berries acquires a pronounced dark color, and the grain is completely separated from the dried pulp, which can be heard by the characteristic tapping of the grain in the middle of the dried shell. Drying lasts until the moisture content in the grain reaches 12%.
The natural method of processing is one of the simplest and most insidious at the same time: because the grain is dried in cherries, and there is a large amount of sugar, during processing, fermentation processes can begin, or coffee will begin to mold. Therefore, during drying, it is important to thoroughly mix the berries and select defects.
After drying, the berries are collected in bags so that the grain exchanges moisture.
The last stage - the grain is sent to the haler to remove all the upper layers.
