Since big corporations started to sell industrially roasted coffee at the beginning of the 20th century, most of us know only the image of a brown coffee bean or coffee powder. But freshly harvested coffee beans are neither brown nor black, but green. They turn brown only later, during the roasting process, at which time they also double their volume.Rohkaffee_und_Roestkaffee

 

Nowadays you can also buy green coffee beans and roast them yourself. Beside the best taste full of natural coffee flavours from a fresh home-roasting, green coffee offers two further important benefits:   

  1. Price. Raw coffee beans have a lower price than the roasted coffee beans. The reason for that lies in the German Tax Law which exempts raw coffee (but not roast coffee) from the coffee tax of 2,19 € per kilogram. That means that anyone who buys unroasted green coffee beans to roast coffee at home for their own use saves this tax. So buy raw coffee and save tax!      
     
  2. Shelf life. While roasted coffee can be kept for up to 18 months (depending on packaging), raw coffee beans store hundreds of aromas for up to 36 months. They develop all their flavours and aromas only during the roasting process. Green coffee beans are therefore your personal freshness guarantee!
