Mechanical Dryer

La Cabana MicroMill, San Pablo, Tarrazu. Thompson Owen, Sweet Maria's Coffee Costa Rica

Mechanical dryers are used as an alternative to sun-drying coffee on a patio, either due to poor weather, or when the patio does not have enough capacity. It is not considered as good as sun-drying coffee. The drum type dryer, called a Guardiola, is considered better than the vertical dryers.
