The wet processing of the coffee beans involves first washing off the coffee fruit (coffee cherry) in order to remove and fleshy or fruity material on the fruit. This is done right after harvest while the fruit is still moist. This is done to remove the pulp from the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee fruit and then the next step is to remove the mucilage through the process known as fermentation. Typically the coffee beans are soaked in water in order to soften the fleshy material and then they are de-pulped and placed in fermentation tank in order to remove the mucilage. Once fermentation is complete then the coffee beans are dried. Drying off the coffee beans may occur either in the direct sunlight or through forced air-drying methods. The goal is to lower the moisture content to 10.5 percent. The benefits of wet processing are that it produces what is termed as a “clean cup” of brewed coffee. The benefit of a clean cup of coffee that the acidity allows the coffee to “shine”. In general the wet processing produces a coffee with a higher acidity than a dry processed coffee and the wet processed coffee will tend to be much cleaner and have a more floral and winey flavor.
