What is Dry-Processed Coffee?


Front of the printed card

Dry process seems simple: Pick the fruit, lay it out in the sun until it turns from red to brown to near-back, and then hull off off the thick, dried outer layer in one step to reveal the green bean. It is a method suited to arid regions, where the sun and heat can dry the seed inside the intact fruit skin.

We spent time at the Volkopi mill in Medan which has produced some great coffee in the past. Machinery is a bit tired and is getting replaced this winter. Medan, Sumatra
