The journey of coffee from bean to cup involves a series of meticulous processes
that bring out its Flavors and aromas. Let's explore the steps involved in this
1. Plantation: Coffee seeds are planted in nurseries, nurtured until they are strong enough for permanent planting. Coffee trees typically take 3 to 4 years to mature and start bearing fruit.
3. Processing: After harvesting, the coffee cherries need to be processed
to extract the coffee beans. There are two main processing methods:
A. Wet Processing: This method involves removing the outer skin and pulp of the cherries, fermenting the
beans, and washing them to remove any remaining residue.
B. Dry Processing: With this method, the whole cherries are dried
in the sun until they become dry and
brittle. The dried cherries are then mechanically hulled to extract the beans.
Each step in this process contributes to the overall flavour, aroma, and quality of the brewed coffee, making it a delightful beverage enjoyed by many around the world.
