Vietnam Wet-processed Robusta Coffee Beans –The process of creating this product is truly a feat. All products are 100% ripe fruit: because in the process of peeling, the machine has floored the jar, only ripe fruits can separate the outer shell.
Moreover, the coffee is manually sun-dried, so the process of evaporating water slowly and keeping the original flavor is no exaggeration, so it is no exaggeration to say that this is the world’s best ROBUSTA product.
With the wet processing process, Robusta coffee beans are selected right from the time it is still in the coffee fruit. This helps to remove the poor quality, poor consistency coffee beans from the very beginning, helping to keep the coffee beans evenly colored in the roasting batches.
So, in terms of sensory, wet processed Robusta coffee will have a more evenly roasted color, and in terms of perception will give a balanced flavor, deep aroma, and clear and long aftertaste. In particular, coffee does not have the musty smell of unripe young coffee.
First of all, it must be mentioned that the picking is ripe. Since wet processing is more expensive, resulting in better coffee quality, coffee cherries put into wet processing need to be harvested ripe and of the highest quality. That makes the coffee beans have a more uniform quality, and the quality of the beans is better.
Next, the wet processing method retains the natural flavor of Robusta better. Therefore, the wet-processed Robusta after roasting has a better taste than the dry-processed Robusta. The scent is more intense, deeper. The taste is not bitter. Especially the aftertaste is very gentle and overall very balanced. Overall very pleasant to drink.
Another difference you can notice right away when looking at the grain surface of wet-processed and dry-processed Robusta is the uniformity of color. Wet-processed Robusta has a much higher color uniformity after roasting.
Robusta beans have a much higher acid content than Arabica coffee, when combined with wet processing, there will be a residual taste. Sour processing is very harsh, and unpleasant in sensory perception, so most of them are dry processed.
Wet processing (also known as the wet fermentation – Wet Process) is a process of processing shredded coffee including the steps: of rubbing coffee cherries. to remove the pods; soak for the mucilage to ferment and then disintegrate; Finally, it is dried to obtain parchment coffee. This is a common method in countries that specialize in the cultivation of high-quality Arabica varieties in Central & South America or East Africa.
After harvesting, coffee is usually processed by two methods: dry processing and wet processing. Wet processing is usually applied to high-economic-value coffees such as Arabica. Robusta coffee is usually dry-processed. However, you can apply the wet processing method for Robusta coffee. So how is the wet processing of Robusta coffee done?
The wet processing method produces higher-quality coffee products due to fermentation by the bean’s own enzymes or the participation of microbial enzymes. However, during wet processing, you need to constantly monitor to avoid the formation of undesirable flavors due to over-fermentation. If you want to process Robusta coffee by this method, please refer to and follow the steps as follows:
► Step 1 – Sorting the coffee: During the harvesting process, the coffee will appear dry due to overripeness. So after harvesting, you will sort to remove the dried coffee and only get the fresh coffee. You can sort by pouring the coffee into the water tank, the dry seeds and leaves will float to the top.
► Step 2 – Peeling: Wet processing is a method of fermenting coffee beans with their own enzymes or enzymes from beneficial microorganisms. However, the skin of coffee is relatively thick and difficult to decompose, so when wet processing, it can produce unexpected strange flavors. So you need to put Robusta coffee through the grinder to remove the pods.
► Step 3 – Conduct grain fermentation: Grain fermentation is the process of removing mucilage. This mucus is often present in the coffee meat, which means removing the mucus also means removing the coffee bean flesh. However, if removed by rubbing, it will be very time-consuming and will lose many components that help decompose Pectin. So you need to ferment in the following order:
► Step 4: Dry the coffee beans so that the moisture content in the beans reaches 12-13%.
