Brauna works with the agricultural university in Vicosa to implement new farm processes. One of the most facinating is a water cleanzing system that can return pure water back into the wet mill and filter out dirty water contaminated with coffee pulp. This process usually involves a system of holding the fermenty water in ponds, and evaporating it. This type of water is an environmental hazard if it re-enters creeks/rivers and such. But this compact machine could solve the entire problem in a compact form. Unfortunately, there was trouble with the filter screens and it wasn't 100% effective. Next year promises better results.
