What is mechanical wash? [Coffee Fanatic Hitomi 's Deep Coffee World No. 8]

Hello! ! Coffee Fanatic Hitomi .

Production processing series. The last category of flushable products is mechanical wash!

I feel like it used to be called Semi Wash, but I don't hear that name anymore these days. For now, I feel like anything that has been washed with water after removing the mucilage from parchment is called free washed.

Well, depending on the producer, if they aren't too particular about it, they can use water fermentation, dry fermentation, or light fermentation in a cherry state, and it will be "Washed".
