On a beautiful sunny, breezy day in southern Ethiopia, I shot this video of how coffee gets washed and dried. There's a lot more to coffee processing than what you see here, including de-pulping the cherries and fermentation, which come before what you see in this video, chronologically. Then, after the activities seen in this video, comes sorting, milling, and packing (and yet more sorting).
But this is the heart of the whole thing. Hard to believe this was just a couple weeks ago... it's been raining non-stop in gloomy Seattle since I got back to the States.
