Is cherry the commonly used term when referring to the coffee plants fruit? It seems incorrect to me in a strictly botanical sense. A cherry is technically a drupe, which by definition has a single seed. To use cherry as a fruit type, when it is itself already classified as a drupe seems odd. It is especially odd, when the coffee plants fruit does not even fit in the same fruit type as the cherry. In my botany class we referred to the coffee plants fruit as a berry, which I believe is technically the correct classification.

I do not mean to be overly critical, and cherry may indeed be the standard term, but I believe that it is incorrect based on botanical terminology. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:12, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Article is about roasting not processing[edit]

While this is a good start on an article about coffee roasting, processing refers to the post harvest conversions of the coffee cherry into green coffee. Wet processing is the primary method. Dry processing is less frequent and commonly used in some regions with dry arid climates. Ronchy 23:34, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

Coffee Roasting Moved[edit]

Moved the information on roasting to a new article Coffee Roasting. This article now reflects coffee processing. This is a start. I plan to add more detailed information and I have photos of many of the steps that I will release under creative commons.

copyright violation removed[edit]

I have removed a large amount of text that was copied into this article on 23 November 2006 from the website I reverted to a previous version that does not appear to be a copyright violation. FreplySpang 21:46, 2 December 2006 (UTC)


Say how many beans or kilograms or liters a basketful is. Jidanni (talk) 06:31, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Pulp why not useful?[edit]

All I know is the pulp is the best part, nice and sweet. However apparently it is useless trash unless otherwise stated...

Wait, see also Talk:Caffeine#No caffeine in coffee cherry meat, only in hard seeds Jidanni (talk)

Caffeine recovered, to do what with?[edit]

Say what they intend to do with the caffeine they recover. OK, I suppose we can look it up... Jidanni (talk) 06:31, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Some picture of coffee processing are restricted ?[edit]

Unless I misunderstood some picture on this files are not displayed because they require you to be an administrator (!?). I either get thing wrong or it is a simple mistake. Anyway, this page seems to be the appropriate way to report this issue. (please remove this entry once this issue if fixed) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rpelisse (talkcontribs) 13:39, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Section rebalancing[edit]

There's information in Coffee wastewater#Processing that really belongs here. That article goes into more detail than this one, which is the wrong way around. Jonathan de Boyne Pollard (talk) 11:49, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Process summary[edit]

I don't have the energy to try right now, but it looks like it would be a good idea to have a short summary paragraph leading off the processing section to summarize the differences between different processing techniques. Pengortm (talk) 04:29, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

As a non technical coffee lover interested in the processing process, I would find that very useful. Looking forward to your energy levels rising - perhaps some strong coffee? Camerojo (talk) 22:34, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
