SO NOW LET US FOCUS ON:
How to find the high quality coffee beans.
Coffee plants need specific conditions to flourish. The two commercially significant species of coffee beans are coffea arabica and coffea robusta.
Ideally, Arabica coffee beans are grown at temperatures between 15 and 24 °C (59 and 75 °F) and Robusta at 24–30 °C (75–86 °F) and receive between 15 and 30 cm (5.9 and 11.8 in) of rainfall per year. Heavy rain is needed in the beginning of the season when the fruit is developing and less later in the season as it ripens.
Approximately 3 to 4 years ,the coffee trees can bear fruit. When the fruit turns a bright, deep red,it is ripe and ready to be harvested. The fruit almost always are handpicked and called the coffee cherry.
These coffee cherry are processed in two ways: the dry method and the wet method. The processes is different but the result is the same, remove the skin and left the beans. The beans are separated by weight and size, of course the big and heavy beans are high quality.
After the separation, beans must now be dried to approximately 11% moisture to properly prepare them for storage.
The coffee beans should be stored carefully with a coffee pouches or coffee bags. It is better add valve on the pouches since the fresh coffee beans naturally gives off large amounts of CO2 (gas). One-way valves are supposed to let CO2 gas out of the bag while preventing O2 getting into the bag.
When you get the coffee beans on hand, the grinding should be processed carefully. Grinding coffee can be, not only enjoyable, but a relatively simple affair.
However it should be noted that the importance of how to grind coffee properly is often overlooked even though it is a crucial step in the anatomy of a perfect cup.
