Washed/Wet process Coffee
Washed / Wet Process Fresh Coffee
"Washed Coffee" or "Wet Process" refers to a processing method where freshly picked coffee "cherries" are "de-pulped" to have their outer skin removed and the beans are then placed in "fermentation tanks" where the sticky fruit (mucilage) is broken down by fermentation.
This mucilage is then removed through washing and/or friction and the clean coffee seeds are ready to be dried.
Washed coffee generally has clean, bright acidity with good clarity and sweetness.
