COLOUR OF THE COFFEE:
 Raw coffee “beans” are green; roasted beans range from light brown to dark brown to black. That's why roasted beans make the brown coffee we all know and love! A coffee bean's final color before it is grounded depends on the roasting process.
Roasting is an important process and it contributes  a lot in the best coffee. Experts say The rich satisfying sensation of coffee is almost entirely due to the volatile compounds produced when we roast coffee beans. Roasting should be done with caution and care so as to sip a fine coffee.
