Harvesting & Wet-Milling coffee

If you frequent high end cafes, you will most likely come across or hear the term “Micro-Mill” used more and more often. A micro-mill is a washing station called a “Beneficio” which is located on a farm. Farms which have their own beneficio’s are able to have complete control over their quality. They are able to grow and harvest their coffee properly, wash & de-pulp their coffee, followed by drying their coffee before bringing it to the dry-mill.
Through working with a properly run wet-mill a roaster is able to be more selective in the coffee we choose. Choosing a single varietal coffee, a specific lot/area of the farm and if we prefer to have our coffee processed a certain way in order to give it a unique flavor is all possible through the micro-mill.
But, there are years worth of work before coffee is ever harvested. Watch this new training video which walks you through the steps, and years of work required before coffee every gets tasted.

After the Wet Mill: Drying & Dry Milling Coffee

Coffee is one of the most complicated products in the world when it comes to consistently harvesting, processing, roasting and especially brewing.

More and more you will hear about how important it is to properly harvest coffee. A Micro-mill is a fairly new term, which is a description for a small mill, located on the farm, which de-pulps the coffee cherries and were coffee is typically dried in the sun.

Not very often do you hear about the steps that happen after this. These steps are briefly outlined in this video prepared by us. It was made to help you understand that all coffee doesn’t stop its journey at the farm….in fact, it still has a lot of processing to go through before reaching the roastery.
