When the skins are shriveled, hard, and nearly black, the husks are removed by pounding on them. In the early days the coffee was often left in its parchment covering for export, though by the late nineteenth century, machines took off the husks and parchment, sized the beans, and even polished them. The dry method often yielded poor results, particularly in the Rio area. Since ripe and unripe cherries were stripped together, the coffee’s taste was compromised from the outset. * Some Rio coffee, however, was handpicked, carefully segregated, and gently depulped.

Cultivated without shade, Brazilian coffee grows even more quickly, depleting the soil unless artificially fertilized. Trees will produce well for fifteen years or so, though some have been known to bear productively for as long as twenty or even thirty years. When trees no longer bear well, they can be “stumped” near the ground, then pruned so that only the strongest shoots survive. On average— depending on the tree variety and growing conditions—one tree will yield five pounds of fruit, translating eventually to one pound of dried beans.
