How to process organic coffee green beans

Red Cherry  Organic coffee beans
Red Cherry Coffee Organic (Images:by
Talking about the production of coffee beans, there is a chain of interconnected began planting to produce a Coffee green beans organic  roasted peanuts are ready. This article is intended to give you an idea of the process of picking organic coffee , methods of processing, and the effect on the results of the processing characteristics in General, here is stages:
  1. Picking,at this stage, the coffee berries are harvested, using either a hand or with the help of a machine. When the time came, the harvesting can be done simultaneously or selectively. Only mature coffee berries are picked one by one using the hands. Every 8-10 days of coffee plant checked back to CF. the fruit which is at a peak level of maturity.
  2. Processing ,  after it is harvested, coffee must be processed as soon as possible to avoid decay. In General, the processing is divided into dry-wet process, process, and the dry process.
  3. Drying,  phase drying these have to do with pas in order to evenly without ruining the coffee beans so that negatively affects its taste profile. Ideally, the moisture content after drying coffee beans there  are in the range of 10-12%.
  4. Milling, is a mill here is not grinding beans into coffee powder (grinding), but instead of cleaning the coffee beans more than a layer of skin and the remnants of his men sticking to then do the sorting. In this stage is exactly the process of grading done to classify the coffee beans into a variety of categories based on its quality.

There are many different factors that affect coffee organic flavors  profile, the example of terroir determined by geographical, geological conditions, planting location and climate. In addition, the selection of the above processing also has a significant sense of influence. Let's review each of the processing.
Drying process organic coffee green beans
Dry Process Green Coffee (Images
The Dry Process
This method of dry also called process natural or unwashed. Simply put, the core of this process is the drying of coffee fruit as a whole with seeds in it — such as drying the grapes become raisins — with drying in the Sun. This process allows the occurrence of naturally fermented which forms the final flavor profile of the coffee. In this method, start the coffee beans are separated from the fruit and Peel that has already dried up at the next stage, namely grinding.

Characteristics of process results: smooth, heavy body, low acidity level, with a keen sense of berry.

The wet method is also called the process washed. This process involves washing of the coffee fruit seeds from fruit separation at once with the help of a machine. Until here, still relatively a lot of flesh of the fruit (pulp) attached and coffee beans still lined by mucous (mucilage). Further cleanup can be done in two ways:
  • Method ferments-and-wash: this process utilizing fermentation by microbes that break down the cellulose of the flesh of the fruit as well as coffee breaks the sugar compounds that make up the mucus that lines the coffee beans. After the fermentation process is complete, the coffee beans are then washed to clean.

  • With the help of machines (machine-assisted wet processing): this process eliminates the remainder of the flesh of the fruit and a layer of mucus that stuck to the coffee beans with brushing the mechanically, without the aid of fermentation.

After being separated from his men, and left only the epidermis (silver skin) skin and horns (parchment) that line the Organic coffee beans, processing can proceed to the next stage, namely the drying.

Characteristics of process results: balanced , clean , and brilliant (bright/vibrant), with a soft fruity essences.

Semi-Dry Process 
A semi-dry method is also known as the process of semi-washed, honey, or pulped natural. This process is a hybrid version of the dry and wet processes commonly used in Brazil and Indonesia. As in the early stages of the wet process, the coffee beans are separated from the fruits using the tool, but the coffee beans are still blanketed by a layer of mucus is not cleared yet, but directly drying for dried until it finally any mucus dries up. The pattern of Red-Brown will give accent as if coffee beans are processed by the method of semi-dried coated by caramel.

Wet milling process, also called wet hulled can be categorized into semi-dry method anyway. On the technique of wet grinders, coffee beans are separated from the fruit is mechanically using traditional instruments played by hand, then the coffee beans are still coated in mucus can be saved until 1 days and subjected to fermentation, then washed by hand. Because the fermentation process that is short and the washing is often only 1 time, the coffee beans are not completely clean from slime, semi-washed coffee yields.

Red cherry, Coffee green and Organic Green Coffee
Red cherry, Coffee green and Green Coffee 
After being washed, the coffee beans are then dried. However, unlike a normal state, drying is performed only until the moisture content drops to 30-35%, then grinded coffee beans (to peel the skin its horns), and then dried for dried up water levels further down to 10-12% as usual. It is this specific process which produces the typical flavor profile of the organic coffee.

The characteristics of the results of the process: the intense sweetness, body, earthy, with a acidity round.

So the coffee  processes. Sometimes you will also find the use of a combination of processing methods above, for example on the process of double-washed, or full-process washed wet milled end. As already mentioned at the beginning, different processing will result in the end of the organic plavored coffee taste profile difference anyway. So, when the choice is available, take note of the process of processing organic  coffee beans when shopping at roaster favorite, to add a dimension of exploration in the adventure of flavors in Your cup of coffee.

Fair Trade Organic Coffee

Fair Trade Poster (Images Source)
The development of the coffee industry currently could be said to be very unusual. Many coffee merchants who prospered because they benefit large enough coffee from each raw and roasted coffee beans they sell. However, it is quite contrary to the welfare of farmers themselves. Many of them are still living in conditions far from prosperous. Unfair trade conditions such as these occur in the coffee-producing countries around the world.

Things like this then make the term "Fair Trade" Coffee " and then develop. There have been special institutions that did address the issue of Fair Trade. The main purpose of the Fair Trade organic Coffee : farmers and sellers are equally prosperous.

Prior to fair trade, prices were regulated by the International Coffee Organization according to the regulations set forth by the International Coffee Agreement of 1962. The agreement, which was negotiated at the United Nations by the Coffee Study Group, set limits on the amount of coffee traded between countries so there would be no excess supply and consequent drop in price. The ICA existed for five years, and then was renewed in 1968.

The agreement was renegotiated in 1976 due to increasing coffee prices, largely a result of a severe frost in Brazil. The new agreement allowed for the suspension of price quotas if the supply of coffee could not meet the demand, and enabling them if prices dropped too low.

In 1983, the agreement was again redrawn, this time creating a database on coffee trade, and implementing stricter import and export regulations.

Fair trade certification was then introduced in 1988 following a coffee crisis in which the supply of coffee was greater than the demand; since no price quotas had been reimplemented by the International Coffee Act, the market was flooded. Launched in the Netherlands, fair trade certification aimed to artificially raise coffee prices in order to ensure growers sufficient wages to turn a profit. The original name of the organization was "Max Havelaar", after a fictional Dutch character who opposed the exploitation of coffee farmers by Dutch colonialists in the East Indies.The organization created a label for products that met certain wage standards.

Quotas remained a part of the agreement until 1989, when the organization was unable to negotiate a new agreement in time for the next year. It was decided that the 1983 agreement would be extended, but without the quotas because they had not yet been determined. A new agreement could not be negotiated until 1992.

From 1990 to 1992, without the quotas in place, coffee prices reached an all-time low because coffee price quotas could not be decided.

The agreements of 2001 and 2007 aimed to stabilize the coffee economy by promoting coffee consumption, raising the standard of living of growers by providing economic counselling, expanding research to include niche markets and quality relating to geographic area, and conducting studies of sustainability, principles similar to fair trade.

FairTrade Coffee Description

Fairtrade coffee is coffee that is produced by small farmers, where products from the estate of small farmers are then used as the fixed supply of establishments such as manufacturers of coffee drinks or coffee shops and cosmetics chain that uses basic ingredients of coffee. This coffee supplier then agreed to pay prices equivalent to the effort expended (in other words are more expensive), in lieu of quality coffee produced by the farmers. This then will impact positively on the lives of coffee farmers.

Many of the world's largest coffee exporting countries such as Indonesia, Brazil, Viet Nam and Colombia is a developing country, so the concept of fair trade in the global coffee trade surely would be very profitable for the farmers. Instead, consumers can enjoy quality coffee, got the impression from the consumption of this kind of products, plus get positive feelings because it contributed to the coffee farmers.

This concept is based on a Fair Trade Agreement agreed all countries in the world, where farmers whose products purchased based on the concept of fair trade will always retain a fixed price, no matter how the market prices of its products in the world. So, don't be surprised if the price of coffee has this label is quite expensive. Although fair trade coffee consuming not too many, coffee is the most fair trade commodities in the world.

Of the 1.6 million farmers and workers involved in Fairtrade around the world, about half are small-scale coffee farmers. Coffee was the first product to be Fairtrade certified when the first Fairtrade coffee from Mexico hit shelves in the Netherlands in 1988. Currently Fairtrade coffee farmers can be found in 30 countries.

Around the world, 25 million smallholders produce 70-80 percent of the world’s coffee, which is one of the reasons why Fairtrade focuses its efforts on small producer organizations. No matter what or where your favourite cup of coffee is – fresh ground or instant, in a café or in your kitchen – there will be a Fairtrade product for you.

Fair Trade Coffee Excellence
In terms of planting and management, consumers can be sure that fair trade coffee is produced in the fields, which opened with a look at aspects of the environment in the vicinity, as well as managed by workers who are paid fairly and not exploited. The average coffee fair trade organic coffee, usually included because most managers are small farmers who don't have too much capital to buy chemical fertilizers and pesticides, so they use natural pest control as well as natural fertilizers such as compost and manure. This is certainly a bonus for consumers who are health conscious.

 The other advantage is the presence of Justice for small farmers, where they will not be exploited or condemned by large plantation owners, with the concept of fair trade. Fair trade coffee is often with coffee quality, so many big manufacturers are used. Currently, there are already around 100 world company specialized supply, where it gets in between is probably your favorite brands such as Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, and The Body Shop.

By buying coffee or coffee-based products that are labeled fair trade, you might have to spend the money a bit much, but instead, you will get a quality coffee which most likely is the organic coffee, and can help improve the welfare of small coffee farmers in developing countries.

  • Coffee beans start to grow as coffee cherries. After the ripe, red cherries are picked, they are washed, dried, and hulled. This yields green coffee beans, which are then roasted and ground to make coffee.
  • Coffee cherries ripen unevenly, so the harvest is a labour-intensive process with multiple visits to the same coffee bush during the harvest season.
  • Under the right conditions, green coffee can be stored for over a year, but roasted coffee should be brewed within 2-4 weeks to enjoy maximum freshness.
  • Brazil with around 30 percent and Vietnam with almost 20 percent of world production are the two largest coffee producing countries.
  • Fairtrade products are sold in over 130 countries.

Decaf Organic Coffee

Decaf Bean Coffee
Decaf Bean Coffee (Image Source)
Coffee in America generally contains one or a blend of two bean types – the hardy Robusta bean and the sweeter, delicate Arabica bean. Robusta beans generally contain twice the caffeine of Arabica beans, but their harsh taste is often considered inferior. Instant coffee tend to be Robusta blends, while coffee houses like Caribou and Starbucks pride themselves on their pure Arabica beans.

While 97 percent of the caffeine must be removed, the Robusta bean will have more caffeine left over than the Arabica bean after the decaffeination process is completed, which can lead to a lot of variance among brands.

Organic Coffee
Most of you might be familiar with the term “Organic” and understand what it means. For those who are not, let me give you some hints. The most general interpretation of the recommendations laid down by various governing agencies, such as the USDA or NPOP, that must be followed by a product labeled as “organic” is that it should contain neither artificial or synthetic substances or chemicals (that means, no chemical fertilizers or pesticides can be used while growing them and no chemicals can be used while processing them). Furthermore, the crop should not be obtained from or contain Genetically Modified Organisms.

Decaf Organic Coffee and Swiss Water Process

This organic coffee is an ideal choice for those who are on a quest for organically grown coffee and for those who also like to enjoy coffee without the effects of caffeine. Grown by environmentally friendly practices, each coffee tree is cultivated without man-made pesticides or fertilizers.

After the coffee beans are hand-selected and harvested, they are decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Method; the coffee beans are rinsed and washed rather than using artificial compounds and chemicals to decaffeinate the beans. Medium-roasted, each brew produces a clean and flavorful cup that is well-balanced and full-bodied with no bitter aftertaste; perfect in every sense, you will not find any flaws in this coffee.

The caffeine is removed from green coffee beans, before they are roasted, and there are a number of different processes, all of which affect the roasting process and how long the coffee stays fresh. (Decaf coffee goes stale almost twice as fast as regular coffee.)

FDA regulations specify that for coffee to bear a decaffeinated label, 97 percent of the original caffeine must be removed from the beans. So, yes, there’s caffeine in decaf coffee. But it’s not very much, right?

Health Benefits of Decaf Coffee

Numerous health benefits, which are mainly attributed to its antioxidant content and other active substances.However, the specific health effects of decaf coffee can be hard to determine. This is because most studies assess coffee intake without distinguishing between regular and decaf coffee, and some don’t even include decaf coffee.

Also, most of these studies are observational. They cannot prove that coffee caused the benefits, only that drinking coffee is associated with them.
  • Diabetes, Liver Function and Premature Death
Drinking coffee, both regular and decaf, has been linked with reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. Each daily cup may reduce the risk up to 7% .This suggests that elements other than caffeine may be responsible for these protective effects. The effects of decaf coffee on liver function are not as well studied as those of regular coffee.  However, one large observational study linked decaf coffee with reduced liver enzyme levels, which suggests a protective effect

Drinking decaf coffee has also been linked with a small but significant reduction in the risk of premature death, as well as death from stroke or heart disease
  • Decaf coffee seem to have positive effects on age-related mental decline 
Human cell studies also show that decaf coffee may protect neurons in the brain. This could help prevent the development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Many studies show that people who drink regular coffee have a lower risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, but more studies are needed on decaf specifically.One common side effect of drinking coffee is heartburn or acid reflux. 

Many people experience this, and drinking decaf coffee may relieve this uncomfortable side effect. Decaf coffee has been shown to cause significantly less acid reflux than regular coffee

Drinking two or more cups of decaf coffee per day has also been linked with up to a 48% lower risk of developing rectal cancer.

Both regular decaf and Organic Decaf Coffee have very good markets all over the world, since many people prefer this variety for health reasons. This trend is growing.

If you’re in the supermarket and can’t find anyone to help you or any way to find out how your decaf is processed, look for an organic sticker on the bag. Organic coffee by definition should not have any non-naturally occurring chemicals or additives, so 9 times out of 10 you can trust that an organic decaf is a good one to drink. We can’t vouch for them all, but it’s a good start.
