Grow the beans (coffee cherries), remove outer skin (pulp), dry the beans, remove inner skin (husks), toast the greenish raw beans to dark brown, grind, and pass the boiling hot water.  Wikipedia if you’d like..

Closer look at the fresh beans, still covered by their white husks, the darker beans are duds that didn't grow right and will have to be sorted out by hand.

The beans are agitated to loosen the husks and then panned to try to blow off the husks and sort out the premium green beans to sell from the dark duds and the husks.
