Green Coffee is essential to specialty coffee. It’s the foundation from which everything else can be built on - roasting, brewing. Good ingredients are a must for good food, but sometimes we forget that green coffee is the basic raw ingredient that can make a cup of coffee delicious or not worth a second sip.
