I only popped in for a coffee.
When the fruit of the coffee plant – the coffee cherry – is ripe and ready for picking, it goes a vivid red. Each cherry contains two coffee beans, each are harvested, dried and roasted. Roasting is an essential stage that allows the aroma, colour and taste of the coffee to develop. As the beans are heated changes occur in the colour and aroma of the bean as aromatic oils are released that brings out the coffee’s flavour, the longer the roast the darker the beans and stronger the coffee.
