As a reliable Arabica coffee supplier, we offer various cleaning methods that suit your business. We provide natural (dry-hulled), semi-washed (wet-hulled), and full-washed (wet-processed) to clean raw coffee beans. Each cleaning method brings different results that impact coffee acidity, flavor notes, and even coffee body. For this reason, it is crucial to know the difference between the 3 cleaning methods before you choose what is a perfect fit for your business.
In a dry-hulled, natural method, the coffee cherries are sun-dried for 20 to 30 days until the moisture content inside the coffee cherries significantly drops to 12%. The sun-drying process allows Ijen Mountain green coffee beans to absorb the flavor notes of the fruit. That’s why our Ijen Mountain raw coffee beans reveal a complex blend of fruity and earthy flavor notes. Once the coffee cherries are parched evenly, the coffee farmers separated the coffee cherries from the dried skin at a dry mill.
For the semi-washed green coffee beans, the skin and pulps of the coffee cherries are removed (de-pulping process). Then, it’s sun-dried without a washing process. Allows the thick-sweet liquid in the outer layer of coffee cherries to stick with the green coffee beans. It takes about 10 to 15 days until the moisture content reaches 10%, slightly drier than dry-hulled green coffee beans. Once the coffee cherries are dried, the coffee farmers remove the mucilage and outer layer by utilizing a coffee milling machine.

The coffee farmers will de-pulping the coffee cherries with a coffee pulping machine.

After that, these wet raw coffee beans are sun-dried until the moisture content reaches 10% to 12%.
