If you are just delving into your coffee journey, then the thought may have crossed your mind about whether or not you can drink coffee beans when they are green and unroasted.
The short answer is no because green coffee beans have a grassy and astringent flavor. If your coffee beans are not roasted, they will taste sour and unpleasant. If you’re hoping to have a lighter cup of Joe, then the best option is to choose a light roast of coffee. This type of coffee will bring out the true characteristics of the beans based on the region that they were grown in. A darker roast will often mask the characteristics of the coffee beans, so that would only be a preferable choice if you like a smoky or dark taste in your Java.
