Coffee as an elaborated product: the industry processes

In this
The coffee fruit undergoes various processes after harvesting. Once it has undergone a number of operations that alter it chemically, it goes from being an unelaborated product to an elaborated product. The roasting and grinding (based on the type of coffee intended for packaging and sale) are further manufacturing processes. The diffusion of the elaborated product took off thanks to Arab traders during the Middle Ages. Throughout the centuries, coffee has incrementally gained popularity in Europe and it is in the West where, thanks to industrial innovation, the product has been further elaborated until becoming the leading product in modern gastronomy that we know today.
But there’s more. Coffee Sapiens delves into cupping techniques and goes on to illustrate where and with what kind of mindset cupping should be done, as well as examining the final step of extreme quality control, tasting by infusion.
