Step 1 : the Harvest

The people are sent with their big basket in the different locations of the coffee field from 6 am to 1:30 pm to pick only the red seeds. Hidden by the rich green leaves, they will take some resting time

Step 3 : the Pulping and Drying

In the case of wet process coffee, hulling removes the dried husk surrounding the coffee bean (including the the exocarp, mesocarp and endocarp/parchment)

 

They then remove the red pulp to extract the coffee bean.

 

The coffee is then spread to be dried.

 

Coffee will be cooked / roasted later.
