Floaters are coffee that has been separated by buoyancy. The word “floaters” is often used in conjunction with “overripes.” While it is generally true that overripe coffee constitutes the majority of the floaters, the hydraulic separation process separates the coffee not by maturation state, but rather by buoyancy. In fact, […]
