A game changer for natural coffee?

Postby sutono on Fri Jul 29, 2011 11:41 am

I was just in Mococa Brazil and saw a very interesting piece of prototype equipment. It is an optical cherry separator that can very accurately sort freshly picked cherry. The benefits are obvious-With some tweaking, the machine should be able to sort basically by brix.

I was introduced to this prototype machine by Marcos and Felipe Croce of FAF (fafbrazil.com). They are considering funding the development of the machine.

Felipe is running some of the most interesting experiments in naturals and varietals that i've seen, by the way.

That's awesome- bringing uniformity to a naturally lacking aspect, I gather.

What sort of experiments? That kind of stuff floats my boat.

He's doing some interesting stuff with harvest temperature, biodiversity as it relates to flavor, and many other things. You might reach out to him directly. You can fond him through the FAF website.
