Coffee Processing January 31 2019

Raw Coffee Gem! Do you know the difference processing makes to the flavor of your coffee? There are two main types of processing: washed and unwashed. In the washed process the skin of the coffee fruit is removed before drying. In the unwashed process, the coffee bean is left inside the skin of the coffee cherry and fermented. The unwashed process creates fruity flavor notes! Try our Ethiopian coffee for a great example of an unwashed or natural processed coffee!

 

Looks like this Sumatra seed escaped the washed process with skin still intact!
