Features and Detail
- Roasting your beans is the best way to ensure that you are getting only top-quality coffee. After all, what could be more personal than brewing each pot just how it should taste? Grinding them before roasting will ruin their subtle nuances in flavor profile, so don’t waste time with low-quality blends! Our recommended roast level for green (unroasted) coffees like these would be medium because the delicate nuances are best highlighted when they’re roasted medium (also known as city or regular).
- The Primos Coffee Company is a fourth-generation family coffee farm in El Salvador that produces some of the world’s finest Arabica beans. Caturra Micro Lots are unique because they offer the highest quality Arabica beans from which all other Central American coffees can be judged by their distinct sweetness and gentle profile that will leave you with sweet memories of home as well as some interesting notes such as a lovely citrus acidity or refreshing cocoa aftertaste depending on how hot your cup was when drinking it!
- Specialty green coffee beans are perfect for those who want to experience the purest form of this healthy drink. The ingredients should be fresh and refined, with 5 or fewer defects per 300 grams; moisture content between 11-12%.
- Strictly high grown under shade trees, harvested by hand and prepared to European standards. Thoroughly washed, naturally dried for your enjoyment!
- The Primos Coffee Company uses the earth’s natural resources to produce sustainable products with high standards for our fellow Nicaraguan citizens and the environment.
My Personal Experience Roasting These Green Beans
I wanted to try roasting my beans on a budget, and those are the ones that I did some experiments with. My initial attempts at pan-roasting them in an open flame resulted in burned goods or even baked instead of roasted.
I had been trying to roast the perfect cup of coffee for weeks, but then I discovered this popcorn popper pot with a hand crank agitator- it heated up on medium and agitated beans at a stiff pace. Every once in a while, I’d give them some fast whirling or reverse direction for just enough time so all seeds would be pulled toward the edge where they couldn’t get stuck! To cool off after roasting many batches at one go (depending on how hot your stove gets), you can carry out onto the balcony while shaking the pot until any extra heat is dissipated into the air, then pour contents over a large cookie sheet instead – no need having too much space occupied by.
I use a method that consistently produces even results on medium and dark roasts. I then store the cooled beans in small batches, pushing all of its air out; letting them rest for about 4-5 hours before using up approximately four days’ worth of grinds, handily enough as it goes with just enough ground coffee needed per cup brewed at 80 degrees celsius via an AeroPress brew process.
I’m by no means a coffee connoisseur, but even with my initial experiments, I could taste delicious flavors and aromas that have never been bottled up in one cup. That is why it’s so easy for me to want others to try what tastes just as good – if not better! These are all personal preferences because everyone has their choice when drinking drinks like this or any beverage.
A little goes a very long way here at home–especially since most people don’t usually finish them before taking another sip 😉
I was just about to give up on my “old” coffee that I used to like so much. But then something changed: the taste of it! It is incredible how freshly roasted and ground beans can make a difference in flavor profile – even when using different origins, species, or blends thereof (wait until you try some Kenyan AA). So now I drink fresh-roasted batches exclusively for me at home, but I also order more through Amazon who understands what consumers want these days.
Green Coffee Beans VS Roasted Coffee Beans
The “green coffee bean” is a seed from Coffea fruits that have not yet been roasted. The roasting process reduces the amount of chlorogenic acid in them, and this means that green beans typically contain more than their unprocessed counterparts; they’re also bursting with antioxidants!
When coffee beans are roasted, the increased temperature and transformation of water into the gas can cause them to become pressurized. One way this happens is through carbon dioxide buildup that will be released after roasting has occurred. The process also helps increase porosity for solubility levels between caffeine and other compounds within a bean’s makeup (such as antioxidants)
Should You Buy Green Coffee Beans?
If you want to enjoy your cup of Joe while brewing freshly roasted beans, I highly recommend that you successfully roast them at home with a roasting machine before buying green coffee beans. Personally, the ability has been quite enjoyable because it’s something new and exciting–and also very easy!
