Coffee Chronicles, Part 5


The color of coffee varies depending to its zone of origin, its botanical species and the time that has elapsed since the harvest. Colorations tend to be specific to particular beans themselves, such as the yellow of the older crops of natural Arabica, the light brown of the Robusta, the green of the newer crops of Arabica and all the way to the washed Central American coffees which tend to have slight hues of blue.

The green bean is primarily at the beginning of the harvest while throughout the year the bean in its natural state is greenish or light green. In the last couple of months of the harvest it becomes a light yellowish green, while it becomes fully yellowish when a year has passed since its harvest, it is completely yellow at approximately two years past the harvest. The even color of a bean will indicate that it was grown, harvested and maintained at a roughly equal level of humidity while irregular colors will indicate that there have been variances in the humidity that the bean has been harvested and kept in.

The Coffee Harvest

The maturation process of coffee lasts between six to twelve months and the season when it flowers and can be harvested depends in great part due to the prevailing climate and the terrain where the bean is grown. In the cultivations which are located north of the equator the period of flowering corresponds to the Northern spring and the harvesting occurs in the Northern winter time. However, when the coffee plant is grown to the South of the equator, the opposite occurs so that the flowering corresponds to the Northern early autumn and the harvest can begin in what is generally the Northern spring and last through to the summer.

The production of the beans can be quite irregular and they do not all ripen at the same time, therefore it is quite likely than on a single particular plant, you will see flowers, green beans, red beans and even brown beans. While the beans arrive to perfect ripeness, it is important to proceed to a harvest which is done on a daily basis of rotation. In order to harvest the beans to obtain the best quality of product, it is either done by the bare hand or with a specific coffee harvesting tool.
