Semi-washed coffee processing is also known as the ‘wet-hulled’ process. The outer skin is removed, similar to washed coffee, but the mucilage – inner-mesocarp – remains on the parchment and is sun-dried. Then the parchment is removed.
The swollen white beans enter the second drying-phase. At 12-13% moisture content the coffee turns dark green, a colour that depicts semi-washed coffee. This processing method increases the coffee’s body and intensity and is commonly found in Brazilian and Indonesian coffees.
