The parchment layer is stripped off by the huller, and the bean graded for density and size, weight and color using different equipment like vibrating air bed, screens, monitors and professional Hand-picking staff to achieve size specification required by the market and to remove any impurities or defective beans.
The highly discolored black beans, damaged and vinegars coffee should be removed because that would affect the coffee taste, even when present in small quantities.
