Your Guide To Buying a Coffee Bean

By Yehudah Posnick

    Instead of having to always buy specialty coffee at a coffee shop, some people would like to experiment making their own. That will require some equipment: If you buy roasted coffee beans, you'll have to get a coffee grinder. Then you'll probably want some type of coffee maker machine for brewing the coffee: either by means of a French press, a percolator, or an espresso machine. But there is still going to be a big difference in the coffee depending on the type of beans that you use. Here is a guide to some of the best coffee beans on the market.  

    There are two major species of coffee beans:

    • Arabica Beans: This species is grown at high altitudes. Before roasting, the Arabica bean is a deep green color. It produces a more mild and aromatic coffee. These beans are roasted in a medium-length process, to intensify its flavor.

    • Robusta Beans: This species is usually grown at low altitudes. It is naturally a pale green/brown color, and is smaller than the Arabica bean. These tend to be more bitter, but have a more intense, rich flavor than the Arabica bean. They contain 50% more caffeine than the Arabica type. They are roasted in a short process.

    The two species of coffee beans differ greatly depending on where they grow. There is also an ideal way of how to roast each type:

    Central and South America: These grow with a high acidity and light flavor, and undergo a light to medium roast. There are differences even within each region of growth: Brazilian coffee is said to have a “chocolatey” flavor, whereas Central American coffee is more delicate.

    Africa/Arabia: These have a medium-level acidity and flavor, and undergo a dark roast.

    Indonesia/Pacific Islands: These have a low acidity and a heavy flavor. They are roasted very dark.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Grinding yourself/buying pre-ground: Some say that pre-ground grains lose some of their flavor. But if the grains are packaged properly, they should retain their pungency. If the beans have been ground, make sure that the package is resealable. You can also store ground coffee in an opaque, airtight container on a kitchen counter or in a cupboard. It is not recommended to store the grains in the fridge.

    • Coarse grind/Fine grind: Each type of coffee machine has its own way of grinding the coffee beans. For example:

      • A home espresso machine should have medium to finely ground grains.

      • A commercial espresso maker should have very finely ground grains.

      • A drip coffee maker should have coarse grains.

      • A French press will require the coarsest grains. Using grains that are too fine will result in a bitter coffee that is too strong. But if the grains are too coarse, they will produce weak coffee (the hot water will not succeed in getting out all the essence of the coffee grains).

    • Fair trade coffee: You might see some coffee advertised as “fair trade coffee”. This indicates that there is no child or forced labor involved in the harvesting, and that the farming methods are sustainable.

    • Coffee bean extraction: The coffee plant produces a fruit much like a cherry. The coffee beans are the “pit” of that cherry. There are two methods of extracting the coffee bean from the coffee berry:

      • Wet processing: A machine takes the fruit off the coffee “cherry”. The pit is then put into water to ferment. The pits (=coffee beans) are washed and left in the sun to dry, or are dried in a dryer. Another machine removes the outer shell of the pit, leaving the unroasted coffee bean.

      • Dry processing: The coffee “cherry” is left in the sun and air dried for 2-3 weeks. Then a machine takes off the fruit and husks of the coffee bean.

      • Semi-washed: A machine takes the fruit off the beans, and washes the beans with water. The beans are then dried in the sun or in a dryer.

    • Coffee blends: There are combinations of the different types of coffee beans, from different locations. For example, espresso is best when it is a blend of various types of bean.

    Death Wish Coffee Co.--was founded by Mike Brown in 2012 in Saratoga Springs, New York. He founded the company in the attempt at making the blend of coffee beans that would yield the world's strongest coffee.

    Koffee Kultare makers of premium roasted coffee beans. They are based in Hollywood, Florida. They acquire beans from 50 different countries around the world, and sell them in a variety of roasts.

    Kicking Horse Coffee—is a organic coffee bean company based in Invermere, British Columbia, Canada. They were founded in 1996 by Elana Rosenfeld. They sell tea, coffee, chocolate and coffee making accessories.

    Lavazza—is an Italian manufacturer of coffee products. They were founded in Turin, Italy, in 1895 by Luigi Lavazza. They import coffee beans from North and South America, Africa and Asia. They also make coffee machines and have a chain of coffee stores.
