Coffee Processing (Starting with the Cherry), a video

This is a monologue, quick and easy video done with a flip camera, showing coffee cherry fresh from the tree, and then discussing the resulting processing options; dry-process, pulp natural, wet-process, forced demucilage. It’s not that pretty, but some good information. Sorry the background music interferes a little. I was trying to make it a tad more palatable! -Tom NOTE: tried to fix music, so these embeds are new files!

    Thanks for the education, Tom! Yeah the music does make it hard to hear what you’re saying, but it was worth the strain. :-) Really appreciate your willingness to educate us.

    I know … I might re-do it if I can make the time. It sounded like it did not interfere, but when I converted it to an MP4 it was a problem. The little Flip camera doesn’t have the best audio either, and I am quickly realizing that it has ZERO macro … but it is SO easy to use…

    I wouldn’t worry about the Flip issues, but I’d sure drop the music. It’s the info that matters, and show and tell that’s easy to produce is what matters. If you ever decide to get into the coffee education business, then you can opt for better equipment :-)

    Tom,
    Awesome info! I agree with the other comments in that the music should go. The information alone is enough to keep us watching! Thanks for the education.

  1. 1 No thanks. I’ve tried that before « Notes from the Roaster
