What is Coffee?
The beans, or cherries, depending on the processing method, are then dried-often in the sun on raised beds. following this, the beans re sorted to remove defects before being weighed and packed into large jute sacks ready for export.
After travelling across the world(UK), green coffee is delivered to a coffee roasters where it is sampled and tasted to ensure it is of sufficient quality. Once approved, the sacks of coffee are unloaded, sorted and separated by origin.
As the green coffee heats in the roaster, sugars in the coffee caramelise – and cell structures of the bean start to breakdown. Throughout the roasting, chemical reactions occur which create flavours and turn the green beans brown.
The Final Step: Coffee Grinding & Brewing
After roasting, beans are cooled, left to rest to allow gases to release and then are ready to be ground and brewed.
