Proposal

After harvesting coffee, it is often collected and processed at a Wet Mill where it is processed. See Wikipedia-16px.png Coffee production#Wet_process These Wet Mills play an important part in the coffee value chain and there are many of them. For example, there are about 220 in the Ethiopian Sidama region alone[1]. Also in Corn processing Wikipedia-16px.png Wet-milling is used

Rationale

There are many Wet Mills globally and they perform a very unique service that is of big impact to their communities. They deserve a more specific tag than building=industrial

Examples

In Rwanda in 2012 there were about 214 Wet Mills (or Washing Stations)[2]
