Where Freshness Come First
Coffee Cherry Beans (Berries)
Coffee beans are not actually beans (berries), but the seed of a cherry from a coffee tree. These trees grow in subtropical climates from sea level to around 6,000 feet.
Harvesting Coffee Beans (Berries)
Coffee is a very labor intensive commodity. The cherries ripen at different times so they must be picked by hand. Since there are about 4000 coffee beans in a pound or 10,000 coffee beans in a kilogram, 2000/lb. or 5000/kg. cherries must be hand picked (there are two beans per cherry). The average coffee tree will produce only about 1 kilogram of roasted coffee per year.
Next, the fruit of the cherry needs to be removed from the seeds. This is accomplished by either of 2 ways, the dry process or the wet process.
The dry process is to let the cherries dry out in the sun or in dryers and then use machines to strip the dried fruit off the coffee beans.
The wet process uses a soaking method to make the fruit come off and produces coffee which is referred to as washed coffee.
These green coffee beans are then sent to be dried. After drying, they are sorted by size and graded (usually by hand). They are then packed and sent to the roasters. The beans will remain green until roasted.
It is important to note that green coffee will stay fresh for a very long time. When freshness is talked about in coffee, it means from date that the green beans have been roasted.
