After harvesting the ripe coffee berries, they are peeled by the wet, or washed, method. The berries get washed in large water tanks. The ripe berries are heavier and sink to the bottom. This way the unripe berries and dirt can be easily thrown away. The good berries will go into the peeling machine to separate the seeds, from the pulp. After this, the beans may soak in the water to ferment the mucous membrane around the bean. This is also called yeasting. Now the ripest beans also sink directly to the bottom of the tank. After this process, the beans get dried on large drying beds or in drying machines.
