Topic: OK, now what? (5 msgs / 155 lines)
1) From: Dave
I just harvested my coffee crop for the year (1 cherry). I want to prepare
and roast the bean(s). What do I do with it now?
The plant is covered with flower buds, so I'm hoping for a larger harvest
next year.

A Jacu Bird would take care of your processing needs. Is there a domestic
source?

Take the ripened coffee cherry to the sink, rub off the skin and the pulp
under it.
Let it soak for a few days (if it floats, throw it away and wait till next
year).
Put it out in the sun for a week or so, until it loses all but 12% of its
moisture, 
turning it daily, then roast!  I guarantee it will be the best you've ever 
tasted... Enjoy!
