If you haven’t seen our latest video yet, here it is, featuring our friend Christina from Rural Spin. Learn how to roast your own coffee beans at home with Future Essentials Canned Green Coffee Beans!
The benefits of buying green coffee beans is that the bean is not cracked yet, so the shelf life of these cans are many years longer than roasted or ground coffee. These are canned with oxygen absorbers and food-grade desiccant packs, so you can expect to these to stay fresh for 20+ years.
Learning how to roast your own coffee beans is as simple as putting them in a pan over heat (stove, solar oven, camp fire, gas grill, etc.) or putting them under heat (broiler, oven, etc.). One of the most popular methods of roasting coffee at home is as simple as using a hot air popcorn popper.
As for the taste, Christina said “for 10 minutes worth of work, you can have the best damn coffee you’ve ever put in your mouth. No, I’m not exaggerating. Coffee I used to rave over at the local cafe where they roast their own now tastes like swill since I’ve learned to roast my own. The main reason is that coffee begins to lose its flavor after it’s roasted; only seven days after roasting the taste is seriously deteriorated.”
