Example text

More nutrients and therefore more fertilizer are needed to grow leaves, roots, wood, and the cherry pulp. GROWTH AND YIELD The arabica coffee tree is generally grown from seed. The seedling initially produces a stem (vertical) and leaves; as it grows, branches (laterals) emerge from the vertical stem. Flowers that become the cherries (fruit) are produced on the lateral branches, not the vertical stems. Flowers are produced once on a section of lateral branches where the leaves are one year old.

If this occurs—that is, no new lateral branches and leaves grow—then the next year there will be no flowers and no cherries. This situation is called alternate bearing; one year there will be a big crop but short growth of the laterals and the next year there will be a small crop but long growth of laterals, and the cycle will repeat. If the condition of insufficient nutrients occurs early in the season, then the cherries will demand and receive stored nutrients from leaves, laterals, verticals, and roots.

Within the past several years, so-called demucilators (desmucilinigadores) have been developed. These machines rub the beans against each other as they emerge from depulpers and literally rub the agar coating off, which oozes away as a thick syrup. The beans can then be dried immediately in a continuous process without suffering the delays of the previous batch process. indb 17 9/18/13 12:21 PM 18 Price Peterson DRYING Great tomes have been written on the art, perhaps science, of drying coffee.
