    Cocoa Bean Drying
    East New Britain

    Here is an example of a cocoa bean dryer in ENB. The cocoa beans are taken from the tree, dried, bagged, and then taken to Rabaul or Kokopo to sell. The wood and coconut husks you see to the left of the dryer are used for burning to heat the beans.

     

    Before placing the beans on the main drying platform, they are placed in these bins. A batch will sit in the left bin for a few days, and then they will be moved to the right bin until they are ready to be heat-dried.

     

    Here is the the main drying platform, which is located above a slow-burning fire to finish drying the beans.
