Natural: also known as the dry process. This is the oldest method. After harvest, the coffee cherries are spread out in a thin layer to dry in the sun.

Washed: this process remove all the sticky cherry from coffee seed before it is dried. This greatly reduces the chance of something going wrong during drying and the process actually cost more than others.

Honey: common process for Costa Rica. The coffee is mechanically depulped, the depulping can actually be controlled to leave a specific percentage of the flesh on the beans. This process use a lot less water.

Wet - Hulled : This is a special process people use for Sumatra coffee. It bags the beans when the coffee has about 50% of moisture content.
