Cuban Coffee Beans in a Cubita Espresso Cup

by Nick (The Coffee Detective)
(Montreal, Canada)


The Cubans are not unlike the Italians when it comes to coffee. In other words, they're more into making espresso than they are into brewing a mug of coffee.

I picked up both the beans and the espresso cup during a visit to Havana. Cubita is the brand name of one of the more popular Cuban coffees.

AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker

This is our most recent coffee maker purchase. (Coffee mug not included) The AeroPress has to be the weirdest looking coffee maker ever. Essentially, it's a giant syringe with a filter at the end.

I'll be reviewing it in full soon. But in the meantime, let me say this – I have never had a better cup of coffee or latte than those I have made with this inexpensive, 100% manual "brewer". It's amazing.

If you don't want to wait for the review, you can learn more about the AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker at Amazon.

Green Coffee Beans

by Nick (The Coffee Detective)

A small handful of green coffee beans.

A small handful of green coffee beans.

This is what coffee beans look like after they have been processed, but before they have been roasted.

As coffee drinkers we rarely get to see green coffee beans. Unless, of course, you roast your own coffee at home.

But coffee, after it is harvested and processed, spends most of its existence in its green, unroasted state.

It is poured into sacks, trucked to warehouses, shipped by sea, trucked again to storage facilities, trucked again, this time to the roasters and only then – just days before being shipped to your home or bagged for purchase – are those green coffee beans roasted.

The roasting takes place at the last moment because while green coffee beans can be stored for months, or even years, roasted beans have a much shorter lifespan and need to be sold, ground and brewed as quickly as possible.

Yes, those beans in your kitchen have been on a very long journey, and have spend most of time in their green, unroasted state.

And yes, you can roast your own coffee beans at home. It's not very difficult.

Also, you might be interest about the health benefits of green coffee bean extract.

It's amazing to see the variety of colors of the coffee cherries, before the pulp is removed and the coffee beans revealed.

Coffee drying on a flat patio in the sun. When we drink coffee, it's easy to forget just how much work goes into the cultivation, picking, drying and processing of the coffee beans.

Doi Chaang Piko's Peaberry Coffee

Tiny Peaberry Coffee Beans

Tiny Peaberry Coffee Beans

These beautiful little coffee beans come from Northern Thailand. They are round, without a "flat" side, because "peaberry" coffee beans are unlike regular coffee beans. Usually there are two beans in each berry. With a peaberry, there is just one bean.
