Machines called aqua-pulpers are common in Costa Rica. They use pressurized water to strip away the mucilage - the sticky substance surrounding the coffee bean - leaving selective amounts to dry on the bean. When all the pulp is removed the coffee is fully washed. When a small amount of pulp is left it is called yellow honey. A little more pulp is red honey and a lot of pulp is called black honey.
