In machine-assisted wet processing, fermentation is not used to separate the bean from the remainder of the pulp; rather, this is done through mechanical scrubbing.

However, by eliminating the fermentation step and prematurely separating fruit and bean, mechanical demucilaging does influence coffee the flavour.
