coffee berry harvests

Side-by-side image: Left shows dozens of round berries, nearly all red in color. Right shows variety of berries, some red, others green, and others brown and rotten.

Coffee cherry (ripe berries) are gathered via standard harvesting rounds (left), while green, ripe, and over-ripe berries are gathered in end-of-season strip-picks (right). Coffee berries serve as reservoirs of coffee berry borer (Hypothenemus hampei), with each berry harboring potentially hundreds of borers that serve as sources of new infestations.
