Unless you are a coffee professional or a serious coffee nerd, you are probably unaware that coffee gets fermented. The two most common methods are wet fermentaions and dry fermentations. With this pack you can see the major differences between the two methods and you can put this information in your tool-box when buying coffees in the future...Don't say we never taught you anything.
Washed (wet-processed): Coffee bean gets seperated from the cherry and placed into tanks filled with fresh water. After several hours or days, the coffee is rinsed with fresh water and then placed onto raised beds to dry until a desired moisture content is reached. This process typically leads to a clean cup with a crisp acidity and sweetness.
Natural (dry-process): The entire coffee cherry is left intact with the bean inside and placed onto raised beds to dry out. The bean is then seperated and left to dry further until a desired moisture content is reached. This process typically leads to a heavier bodied cups with intense dried fruit forward flavors.
