Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The diagram provided shows a method of producing coffee from the initial stages of hand sorting through to the final stages of packaging and sales.

The dry method to produce coffee begins with sorting the beans by hand. Once the sorted beans have been cleaned with the help of a sieve to filter out any impurities they are left out in the sun to dry for a duration of 4 weeks. The next step involves raking and turning the dry beans. Prior to being sent to the mill they are stored. At the mill they undergo a process known as hulling which involves crushing the beans manually. The finer coffee beans are then graded, bagged and sold to manufacturers in bulk. The manufacturers then need to roast the coffee, pack it and sell it to consumers.

The dry method used to produce coffee is lengthy and time consuming. It requires many steps for its completion before consumers can enjoy it and manual labour is required.
