Join Helena to learn about Parchment – Rice husk.
Coffee terms you should know are as follows:
- Density – Particle Density
- Mucilage – Mucus
- Peaberry – Culi seeds
- Pulp – The Flesh
- Quakers – Young Kernels
- Silverskin – Silk Shell
The parchment inside is the silk skin that is the coffee bean
The thin and hard husk forms a protective layer around the coffee beans. Parchment is also known as parche (French) pergamino (Spanish). See more coffee to understand better.
After wet processing, the husk is usually left on the coarse coffee beans during storage as it helps protect the beans until they are rubbed off, along with the silk shell before roasting.
