Coffee cherry is dumped directly into the bin which equals (if I remember right) 10 Latas. A Lata is how coffee cherry is measured and how pickers are paid. One Lata is about the size of a cubic foot. This cherry represents fairly good picking, since the machines and flotation channels will remove the underripe, yellow-green cherry in the image. Then again those could be Yellow Caturra or Yellow Catuai cultivars, which are ... you guessed it ... yellow, not red, when fully ripe.
