What I have seen online suggests that it is what one would think of as severely under roasted (by coffee standards) coffee. The flavor profile is very different than traditionally roasted coffee and much closer to tea with a lot of bitterness from compounds that are generally roasted off.

You were most likely right in saying 'no' straight out. Coffee is considered organic if no chemical substances were used for its production. This includes herbicides, pesticides, and I believe some fertilizers too. Wikipedia agrees with this. But even if you're a coffee producer and you're sure you don't use chemical substances and there are no residues in ...

As the best of my knowledge, no. There is a bean variety named Jamaican Blue Mountain. Maybe its name could make people misunderstood... Nothing that is blue I've heard of. Other than that, not the regular coffee as we know it, but some of its variations may have different colors. Green coffee: This is the coffee brewed from the unroasted coffee beans. ...

Dry Process | This is the oldest method of modern processing. It requires very little equipment. It is basically a manual process of letting the coffee cherries raisin up, then peeling them. It is a labor intensive process. Dry processing tends to produce body heavy, smooth coffees with complex notes. Dry processing is used extensively in Brazil and ...

No. Unroasted coffee beans are denser and wetter than roasted beans and will not grind well. You will break your grinder trying, and even if the grinder succeeded, you'd get more of a mush than solid grinds. Also, roasting ground green coffee would allow much more of the oils and gasses trapped in the coffee to leak out during roasting than even the driest ...

Disclaimer: After I have met with the world espresso champion who is also a local coffee producer in El Salvador today, I decided to improve this answer. I think, one should know the diversity of these three main techniques to distinguish the differences. There will be other minor techniques, as well. All these techniques are in essence used to protect the ...

If the beans are green and dry they can be transported in burlap sacks. But you have to insure that the shipping process can maintain dry conditions. So it is best to use a good quality zip lock bag or vacuum seal the beans after insuring they were complety dry prior to placement in the bags and or sealing.

Anything that is air tight would be best. Grain pro, ziplock, etc.. Vacuum packing is optimal.

Even if the beans are certified USDA Organic, there are also conditions set upon you as the roaster of the beans: If the operation does not have a dedicated roaster or grinder for organic beans, it must implement measures to remove all non-organic residues from equipment. This is most effectively done by conducting a purge or flush with organic beans in ...

Green coffee usually refers to unroasted coffee beans. You can make an infusion from them that matches the taste you are describing, with a lot of bitterness and more "tea-like" taste. Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not yet been roasted. The roasting process of coffee beans reduces amounts of the chemical chlorogenic acid. Therefore, ...

You failed to give us any details about the variety, provenance or history of your green coffee beans. Nor did you elaborate on what kind of potential pests you are worried about so all we can do is speculate vaguely. The only likely pest to be found in green coffee beans is the coffee berry borer, Hypothenemus hampei. This is a tiny, 2mm black beetle. And ...

Roasted coffee loses flavor quickly after grinding due to oxidation and the release of CO2, related to the bigger surface area created by grinding. I'd think that effect would be magnitudes larger if you'd roast ground coffee. Now imagine the coffee being roasted with the huge surface area after grinding. Now, that's a bit speculative, but even if the ...

The green coffee beans are, if not spared for home-roasting, are very lightly roast coffee beans. They are known to be very fruity and light when brewed. You may try to use the regular coffee brewing methods but the result may taste too weak. You may also try to brew them for longer periods just like any other "herbal tea". I assume, longer periods in a ...

I've heard of white espresso before.It's basically any bean that is severely under roasted.Just long enough to take out some of the grass and bitter notes. It's not actually white though, it looks more pale and kinda greenish to me.

You can get a 'Green Tea Latte' at a place I went recently. it looked like this: It is not coffee at all, but green tea mixed with microfoamed milk.

This is most likely coffee mixed in with matcha (green tea) powder rather than it being 'green coffee'.

I've been drinking it at home for a while now. I really love it. It tastes very different from roasted coffee, so don't try to compare it. I think much like one wouldn't compare yogurt and whipped cream. And later in the stomach it feels much better than roasted coffee. The amount of caffeine is about the same, for the same amount of original beans (their ...

Coffee beans are green till roasted. For the best. Choose well dried coffee beans that are set on tarps to dry beside the road. Sun dried. If not when you buy your coffee at the market ask if they have extra dry beans you can buy. Have them grind them there to your likes. All coffee is made from green coffee beans there natural color till roasted. Some ...

matcha by itself is not anything near tea or coffee. it never boils to begin with, so am not sure if coffee can come out of it. matcha is not green tea either. it's matcha leaves ground into powder and then specially cooked and mixed to make matcha drink.

There is a tea made from coffee, and it's called "Cascara." It is not from the actual seed - but instead from the fruit that surrounds the coffee seed before being processed. You can as well steep the leaves from the coffee shrub, although it's a lot less popular than cascara. I really don't think you have coffee that was not roasted - that sounds miserable.....
