Washed Arabica (Plantations)
What is Washed Arabica Coffee?
Harvested Coffee can be processed generally in three ways, out of which one is fully doubled Washed also known as Plantations. Under this process, the coffee cherries are sorted out by immersion in open water tank. Bad or unripe fruit will float and the good ripe fruit will sink which will be passed to a mechanical pulper to remove the outer skin of the cherry. During pulping, the cherries are washed with water, their outer skin is removed and this cherries with fruit pulp is sorted and moved to special fermented tanks where it will be allowed to ferment for specific hours. Post fermentation, it will be washed again to remove the fermented mucilage before it is send to dry on elevated drying yards. Once properly dried under strict supervision, now called as Parchment is stored & labelled lot wise, block wise with total quantity and logged in a book for traceability and transparency.
