2. Coffee By-Products
Did you know that coffee by-products have great
potential for use in different industries?
When you hear the word “coffee”, you almost always think of the drink or the coffee beans.
However, coffee almonds constitute only 40% of the weight of a cherry. The remaining 60% corresponds to other components that are eliminated during the benefit process to obtain the green almonds that are to be roasted.
In economic terms, this means that more than half
of the weight of the coffee harvested does not generate profits for the farmer.
Click on the following link to read more about the coffee economy.
In environmental terms, it means that these by-products are going to water sources generating major pollution problems.
It is for this reason that. the industry and restless entrepreneurs are focusing their efforts to find alternative uses that give added value to these coffee by-products.
And the results, although still incipient, are very promising.
Research has shown that coffee by-products have many properties that make them raw materials of interest to the industry.
The first stage of the coffee benefit is to separate the almonds from the peel (Epicarp) from the cherry.
This is achieved with the use of pulping machines and from this process the coffee pulp is obtained.
When the coffee husks are properly placed in pits, after 4 to 6 months a good quality organic fertilizer is obtained.
It is estimated that with the fertilizer produced during a year, it is possible to cover the total fertilization requirements of a quarter of the area cultivated in coffee.
That is, if you have a coffee crop of four hectares, with the fertilizer obtained from the coffee pulp of those 4 hectares you can pay one.
In some cases, coffee growers incorporate Californian red earthworm in the pits and in this way, they manage to obtain earthworm humus, a better quality fertilizer.
Believe it or not, from the coffee husk you can get one of the best desserts you have ever tried.
First, it is necessary to bleach coffee husks in boiling water with baking soda.
Three consecutive bleaches should be done to remove all bitter flavors from the husks.
Then, you only have to cook them with sugar or brown sugar. Its flavor is very similar to that of brevas (figs) in syrup.
You can add half a cup of concentrated coffee during cooking to accentuate the flavor and some spices such as cloves, cinnamon or lemon zest.
The production of these preserves is still very limited and is done in an artisan way on a small scale.
Small coffee growers who have begun to produce this type of canning, harvest fully ripe cherries, wash and pulp them by hand to obtain the peels.
The peel of coffee cherries in addition to sugars,
has high content of minerals, potassium, chlorogenic acid and caffeine.
Chlorogenic acid and caffeine have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Thanks to its delicate fruity, slightly acid and sweet taste and a lower caffeine content when compared to that of a cup of coffee, day-to-day coffee husk tea gains more adherents.
In Yemen, coffee husk tea is a traditional drink called Qishr. It is prepared by adding sugar, ginger and cardamom to the infusion.
Starbucks already has among its menu several drinks made from coffee husks.
Coffee husk tea can be consumed hot or cold. In either case, it is also delicious very energetic and healthy.
And it is ideal for those who want to lose weight thanks to its diuretic properties.
The honey or mucilage of coffee corresponds to the
part of the fruit called “mesocarp”.
After pulping the coffee cherries, the almonds are covered by the mucilage.
In the case of washed soft coffees, that mucilage must be detached from the almonds through a fermentation and washing process.
Coffee beans that pass through the pulping machine fall into a tank where they remain for a period of 12 to 40 hours.
During this time fermentation occurs thanks to the action of yeasts and bacteria that break down the pectins and sugars of the mucilage.
The time that the mucilage remains in contact with the almonds before being washed, is responsible for conferring the flavors that will characterize the coffee cup quality.
After fermentation, the mucilage is easily removed by washing the coffee beans with clean water.
These honeys or water honeys are discarded. In some
cases they are added to the pulp that falls into the pits where it ends up
enriching the fertilizer.
In others, honey waters are conducted to a treatment system before being discharged to water sources.
But in many cases, farms do not have treatment systems.
So the honey and washing waters go directly to rivers and streams causing pollution.
However, coffee mucilage or honey is a byproduct with many nutritional and nutraceutical properties.
For this reason the industry has begun to manufacture several interesting products based on coffee honey.
With concentrated coffee honey you can make all kinds of sweets, such as spreads, candies and toppings. It’s just a matter of letting your imagination fly.

4. How Coffee Became a Culture?
Legend has it that the oval fruit of coffee was consumed at the discretion of a group of Ethiopian goats that then jumped and trotted, energized and happy. Of course, the pastor’s curiosity was stimulated by the fact, so he decided to try the effects of the red and small fruit himself. The obvious result was the stimulation of something more than his curiosity. In some versions, the stimulated shepherd took samples of leaves and fruits to a monastery, in others to a Muslim saint.
From faraway Africa, at a time that cannot be accurately specified, to this day at these coordinates near the middle of the world, coffee has had to travel endless kilometers and time measurements. On their way the stories are repeated: the almost magical substance helps people remain alert, emerge victorious in war expeditions and socialize with fans to their effect. Of course the detractors were not lacking. More than once the drink was banned and its use controlled due to its inherent effects. However, the spirit drink always managed to get out of the way.
In the seventeenth century, when he first arrived in Europe, some Catholic priests called him a bitter invention of Satan. However, after trying the elixir, Pope Clement VIII was so captivated that he decided to symbolically baptize the concoction to make it acceptable to all Catholics. The first cafeteria opened in London in 1652 and was followed by many others that became places conducive to the birth of liberal ideas and the distribution of pamphlets.
In 1689 the glorious seed crossed the Atlantic and the first establishment was opened in Boston, shortly thereafter the drink gained the rank of national drink. Few stimulants have won the battles against social acceptance like coffee themselves.
Many believe that coffee has an unusual symbolic value: many people drink a cup of coffee in the morning as a personal rite or share them with others throughout the day. The economic relations of coffee are even more surprising: in the stock market this commodity reaches the second place (yes, the second), after oil.
