READY TO ROAST
Raw, green beans need to be roasted before they can make a brew. During roasting, the coffee beans expand and change colour. They turn to yellow as they absorb heat; brown as they lose water content; and darker still as they secrete their oils. The longer they roast, the darker they become and the more flavour they release.
