Sieve

5. Peneira (abanador)

w/o date.
Wicker

A wicker sieve used on the coffee pre-cleaning process during the harvest. This process is called screening. The beans are thrown upwards to remove branches and leaves that normally are harvested along with the coffee on the strip-picking process: as they are lighter than the beans, they disperse with the wind. This process is repeated several times by the worker until the harvested coffee is satisfactorily clean.
This equipment was acquired by Museu do Café on 2004 by purchase.
