Washed Processed Coffees

Typical Flavors: Clean, articulate flavors; caramel or sugary sweetness; wide spectrum of fruit acidity depending on other factors; capable of bright, crisp notes

 “Washed” as a loose definition typically means that the coffee fruit has been removed from the coffee seed as quickly and as cleanly as possible. This process is the primary method for preparing specialty-quality coffee in most of Africa, Central and South America (with the exception of Brazil), and select parts of the Asia-Pacific growing region.
