All this coffee in the image is like that crap at the low side of the density table. This is used (sadly) for roasted-ground coffee sold in the country. It really should just be burned, but coffee growers need every penny they can get. About 10-20% of ripe, well-picked coffee is lost on the gravity table. Add to that all the coffee remve in the wet-process part (immature, floaters, etc) and a pound of picked coffee cherry might result in less than 1/4 pound of good, top-grade coffee. But that is what Specialty Coffee is all about folks ...
