Perhaps this is not new, but I found it today while reviewing the
"Full Review" of one of the coffees (Brazil Ipanema "Tree
Dry-Process").  Intending on copying the full name of the coffee, I
"triple-clicked" and a window popped up.  The "clicking" was done on
the word "process" and the following popped up:
---------------
processing
The removal of the cherry and parchment from the coffee seed.
Related Terms:
wet-process, dry-process, pulp-natural, parchment

The terms "wet-process, dry-process, pulp-natural & parchment" were
all hyperlinks to other definitions in the dictionary.  You can then
"click" on "Full Dictionary Entry" and it takes you to the long
definition in the dictionary:
---------------
processing
Coffee is either wet-processed (also called washed or wet-milled) or
dry-processed (also called wild, natural or natural dry, and we
abbreviate it DP sometimes). The type of processing is chosen to
produce different cup qualities, or sometimes is just a matter of
tradition, logistics or economics. In a nutshell, washed coffees are
brought to a mill soon after picking, the coffee cherry is depulped,
allowed to ferment, washed to remove all pulp, laid on patios or run
through an electric dryer, removed from their final skin called
parchment, and sorted. Dry -processing involves laying out the
cherries on patios or roofs, and later removing the skin, pulp and
parchment in one fell swoop. Dry processed coffees are more
yellowish-green because there's more silverskin (chaff) attached to
the bean. They look rangy, but often have more body and character in
the cup.

The dictionary itself can be found at:http://www.sweetmarias.com/dictionary.phpWhere one can learn the definition of Abyssinia:
Ethiopia was formerly known as Abyssinia, or this term may refer a
coffee cultivar. Abyssinia is also a cultivar brought to Java in 1928
(not the original Typica brought from Yemen to Batavia, Java via
India). Since then, they have been brought to Aceh as well. Another
group of Ethiopian varieties found in Sumatra are called "USDA", after
an American project that brought them to Indonesia in the 1950s.

I found this to work only on sweetmarias.com and not on the Weblog.
Again, maybe it is not new, but I thought I would mention it in the
event others may find it useful.
Respectfully,
Eddie
