Green Coffee Beans - Things To Consider

Aug 24, 2008
Today more and more people find that they do not function properly first thing in the morning until they have had their first cup of coffee. Although many people prefer to make coffee beans which have already been roasted and then ground so all they need to do is put them in to the coffee machine. There are others who prefer to purchase the green coffee beans and then roast them in order to provide them with a much more distinctive flavor that can not be found anywhere else.

For those of you who are thinking about green coffee beans which you can then roast yourself in order to make great cups of coffee with there are certain factors which need to be taken into consideration. Below we take a look at what these factors are.

The first thing that you should be looking at when buying any kind of green coffee bean is its appearance. Ideally you should be being those beans which come in a uniform shape or size. If not then when it comes to the roasting process you may find that the smaller ones will become over roasted and the larger ones not roasted enough. Also ensure that the beans are the same size and shape ensures that the coffee when drunk has a consistent taste to it.

As well as making sure the beans have a similar appearance to them you need to look closely at the color of them. Again it is better to go with those beans that look very similar in color and if there is any unevenness between the beans then avoid them. Often this has been caused by their being a problem when they are being dried. If you choose beans which have the same color and tone to them you will find that the coffee you make after they have been roasted will taste similar each time that they are used.

Another factor, which any coffee lover should be taking into consideration if they choose to roast their own beans, is to find out where they have actually been grown. There are a number of different countries around which now sell them beans before they have been processed and some of the more common ones are supplied from Columbia and Hawaii. Even though the coffee beans are grown on the mountain sides both in Columbia and Hawaii each one has its own distinctive flavor.

If you are someone who prefers to drink decaffeinated coffee rather than normal coffee you can actually purchase green coffee beans that you can then roast for yourself and which do not contain any caffeine. Although there are quite a few countries which now produce these kinds of coffee beans for you to purchase the main growers can be found in Columbia, Costa Rica and Guatemala.

The final factor that you need to take into consideration when considering purchasing green coffee beans in order to roast them there are a number of different places you can try. Probably the quickest and easiest way to be able to get hold of coffee beans, which have not been roasted, is by going online. There are a wealth of sites that offer you the chance to purchase what you want online and have them delivered directly to your door.

A speciality coffee shop is a great way of getting hold of the numerous different types of green coffee beans that are now available. Plus you will find that the owner of the shop is often willing to provide you with advice and information in relation to what may well be the best types for you to try. They may well also provide you with the chance to take home a small amount of each of the beans you are considering so that you can then try them out to see which of them you prefer the taste of. This is probably a very cost effective way of finding out exactly which coffee taste it is you really like and which of the various coffee beans now available you wish to avoid in the future.
