Harvesting and preparing coffee beans (Annandale 2019)

White's Creek Lane Annandale, 9 Sep 2019
Used online instructions for harvesting and processing coffee ready for roasting,  but still not sure whether Berries should be picked when red and fleshy or black and more dry.

Picked the coffee beans on the afternoon of Saturday 7 December 2019.

Extracted the beans

Skins


 Washed of as much of fleshy material as I could

Soaked  the beans -  to ferment them.
This was for about 48 hours. Some were starting to grow mould.

9 December started to dry them


On 16 December, I noticed that the beans were popping out of another shell. They are quite dry.
Benefiting from the hot dry conditions in Sydney!
