Why You Should Buy Green Coffee Beans?

I have been asked on several occasions while out socializing with my friends, why I think they should buy the unroasted coffee beans. This usually turns into a long discussion. But, it also allows me to share the information with them too. I enjoy learning as well as sharing this kind of information with each and every one of them.

Everyone knows that coffee is only as good as the beans were used. When selecting green coffee beans, there are some things you should look for. The first is to mark their appearance. They should all be about the same size, shape and color.

This will most definitely indicate the presence of quality control. It also tells you that the coffee producer is serious about the high quality of the beans and went the extra step to inspect the green coffee beans before packing.

Above all else, make sure the colors of these coffee beans are all as equal as possible. This tells you that they were all dried to the same level and they are all from the same batch.

Yes, it makes a huge difference when you bring them home and roast them. Do not be afraid to pick up a handful of green coffee beans and inspect them! Always trust what your eyes and nose tells you about them because the old saying… "The Eyes See and The Nose Knows"! Is usually correct!

Before you buy your beans, you might want to do a little research on where the beans are produced. Different environments produce different tasting coffee. Coffee plants derive their taste of the soil and growing conditions.
