Is it possible to grind green coffee beans, then roast the grinds, and make a good cup of coffee with the result? Are there reasons why doing so would be impossible or impractical or would necessarily result in a bad cup of coffee? Has it ever been tried?
This is entirely a curiosity of mine, but I could imagine some benefits of making coffee in this way. For example, the roasting time may be much faster than traditional roasting, perhaps making the process of home-roasting more appealing.
