In this process, the beans are completely pulped, removing all the cherry fruit. Then they are immersed/washed in water to completely remove their mucilage. The removal of mucilage can be mechanical (demucilator) or through the activity of microorganisms (fermentation).
It appears as a cleaner drink, highlighting the most intrinsic traits of the region and not the drying process itself.
Processing follows the following steps:
– Grain separation.
– Removal of husks.
– Submersion of the grains in water to remove the mucilage.
Because they are in direct contact with the sun, drying is usually a little faster than in the natural process, for example.
