Gather coconut (prefer those mature shells).

Break all gathered shells. Scrape the coconut meat. Remember we will only use matured shells and thick coconut meat.

Gather the chunks of coconut meat. Wash the meat and prepare for drying. Make sure the size of the chunks not to exceed 3 sq inches for better and faster drying.

Dry the chunks of coconut meat. You sun dry for several hours or days. This will preserve and avoid moisture on the coconut chunks.

Dried coconut meat is reddish in color and you will smell the aroma of the coco milk and oil. Once all the chunks are readdish and dried you may not sell it to copra buyer or you may prepare the next step "Extract Coconut Oil" from dried copra.
