Coffee Bean Counting


Coffee Bean Counting

Coffee Bean checking! Who knew that Coffee Beans aren't ok when you get them. They come green before they're roasted, but to make it all tasty, they need to be checked out one bean at a time! See the beans in the picture? Here's some examples of common flaws. In a sack of beans that might be 50 lbs on the minimum, the quality of each bean is key, and who's going to be check that as diligent as you may? It's on the roaster to do it. Here's Ray from Balconi shows me a quick demo of things that can go wrong. In a minute he picked out a bunch that were flawed from a tiny sample on that plate. You might think, who cares if a few beans are messed up? But Ray states, “one bad bean can ruin a whole pot.”
