As I mentioned, coffee is evaluated in green form. They are experts at looking at green to determine how much under-ripe, and other defect seeds are present. This is important, because once Sowaid buys it, he is going to have to remove the defects and that reduces the amount of exportable coffee he has to sell. But there is little to no cup quality analysis, cupping, in Yemen! That surprised me greatly.
