Green Coffee Beans

While sipping coffee one bone idle afternoon, have you ever thought about where coffee came from?

Green coffee beans are the source of all those types of coffee you are so fond of. Brazil continues to be the largest coffee exporter, although the green coffee market has recently been flooded with large amount of Robusta beans from Vietnam. Owing to the indirect pressure exerted by the World Bank to the French government, experts believe that the influx of cheap green coffee resulted from the crisis in pricing that started in 2001, and continues to the present.

Robusta coffees, which were traded in London at a cheaper price compared to New York’s Arabica, are the choice of large industrial clients consisting of multinational roasters and instant coffee producers; they favor these coffees because of the less expensive price. A rare and costly variety of Robusta is the Indonesian Kopi Luwak and the Philippine Kape Alamid. Coffee beans are collected from the droppings of the Common Palm Civet, the digestive process that gives it a distinctive flavor.

When roasted, a green coffee bean expands to nearly double its original size and changes in color and density. As the bean absorbs heat, its color changes first to yellow then to a light cinnamon brown. At this stage, the bean expels moisture, and, upon reaching 400 degrees Fahrenheit, it turns brown and oil is released from its interior. This oil gives coffee its distinct flavor. The greater the amount of oil released, the stronger the flavor. The coffee beans will crack during the roasting process, which guides roasters as to how to gauge the progression of the roast. The bean will then continue to expel more oil while darkening its color, until such time it is removed from the heat.

The price war continues, as the decline in the ingredient cost of green coffee paralleled the rise in popularity of thousands of specialty cafes selling their coffees at exorbitant prices.
