Whenever weather permits, coffee is sun dried on the concrete patios. If there are storms in the area, it is collected and put into the mechanical dryers. Patio dry is always preferred (by me at least) because it makes the green coffee more durable over time. But slow, careful mechanical drying is definitely preferale to soaking coffee in a rainstorm! Raining on parchment coffee ruins it. Here, the parchment coffee (pergamino) is collected and covered at the end of the day. Then it is run over by the forklift ... okay, that's a joke.
