About Coffee Beans
Green coffee beans

Green coffee beans are un-roasted. They have not gone through the roasting process and therefore can be transported or kept fresh longer. Many people enjoy purchasing this green coffee bean because they can then roast the coffee beans at their own speed, heat, and in their own method. More people are finding great pleasure in roasting their own beans. Are you one of them?

It is obvious that the world loves to drink coffee. But, what makes it so good is the taste. For those that want the best taste, it just has to be as fresh as possible. This includes not only the grinding but also the roasting of the green bean.

For many people, the best coffee is made when they purchase coffee beans that are green or un-roasted. Then, they can use any method they would like to roast them. Some take the beans and roast them in an oven. Others use a popcorn popper. Or, for those that are true coffee lovers, they will purchase their own coffee roaster. The end result is the perfect cup of coffee.

After drying for about a year, coffee beans are slowly roasted to the perfect level of taste. For many, this process is slow. It causes the coffee bean to transform into the wonderful tasting coffee that we drink. Gourmet coffee beans are roasted like this as well, but the coffee beans used are often more expensive because of the plant that they came from.

At any rate, coffee that has been roasted quickly starts to lose it flavor. That is why so many people are turning to roasting green coffee at home. To find and purchase green coffee, the beans are found in many of the online merchant's websites. There are hundreds of varieties to be tried!

Roasted Coffee Beans

Have you ever smelled freshly roasted coffee beans? If not, you are really missing out. For anyone that loves coffee (or anyone else for that matter), there is nothing like the smell of the fresh roasted coffee bean to wake you up and get you moving in the morning. Contrary to what coffee manufactures want you to think, though, coffee that is ground smells nothing like fresh roasted beans. Did you know that you can do this yourself?

You can purchase green coffee beans and roast them yourself. Choose your favorite flavors of coffee beans from a light to a dark or even the espresso beans you so love and buy them green! That means that they have not been roasted yet. Then, you can either roast them in your oven for an outstanding quality or go one step farther and purchase a coffee roaster.

In either case, you'll want to wait a day to grind them in a coffee grinder. Then, grind what you need from your roasted batch. The rest can be kept in an air tight container for about a week. The quality of these freshly roasted and freshly ground beans will blow your mind away for sure.

You'll find the coffee beans available online. You'll also find the coffee roasters available as well. If you do not want to roast your own beans, then you can always find awesome quality, professionally roasted beans to purchase as well. Whatever you do, grind them yourself and enjoy the great taste and quality of this coffee each morning. You just don't deserve the stuff in a can!

You'll find all sorts of flavors to choose from. And, when you get them online, you can count on the freshness as well as on the great prices! Roasted beans or un-roasted, you'll never buy your coffee from the supermarket again once you taste the quality with these.
