When it Comes to Coffee, Green is the New Black
Everyone is familiar with coffee: the smell wafting out from the kitchen, the relaxation of catching up with friends at your local cafe, or that drinkable burst of energy before a big presentation. Even if you don’t like the taste, the smell is recognizable from grocery store aisles to airline beverage carts—coffee is part of our landscape.
Those coffee beans all share one common trait: they’ve spent time in a roaster. Roasting coffee beans—at different temperatures and for different times—creates the variety of flavors, colors and smells. You’re probably familiar with the various medium, bold, French, Italian and espresso roasts. Regardless of which you choose, when drinking coffee your beans are going to be roasted.
