Phormium has developed a leno weave called PhormiSun Dry to facilitate the drying of beans like coffee cherries.
For coffee, this dry processing method achieves the highest quality and flavor and can be done on raised beds.These beds, also called African drying beds, keep the cherries off the ground and allow air to circulate more easily. The method is a lot faster, cleaner and less expensive than using traditional concrete patios. The air circulation from bellow the bed creates more homogeneous and smooth drying process. PhormiSun Dry protects the cherries from the metal wire without limiting the air permeability. The net is UV stabilised to allow a prolonged use.
