Yes, grinding your own coffee beans is cheaper. Though pre-ground coffee might come at the same price, you will get sub-par coffee that has a stale flavor. Even though you pay the same money when grinding your coffee beans, you will get a far superior coffee that has a rich aroma and taste.
· In producing countries, coffees have long since been graded by size, with terms like “AA”, “Supremo”, and “Superior” used to classify the largest beans. Uniform size is key for coffee roasters, as roasting beans of different sizes will lead to an uneven roast and poor or imbalanced flavours in the cup.
· João says: “The world produces about 170 million bags [of coffee per year]. This production takes place on about 10.5 million hectares, according to the latest surveys by the FAO. [On average], we are looking at a global average of 16 bags per hectare (bags/ha).”. However, according to him, this is an issue.
· Excelsa beans are also lower in caffeine than both canephora and arabica. Dr. Oliveiro Guerreiro Filho is a senior researcher at the IAC in Brazil. He tells me that the organisation’s germplasm bank shows that the caffeine levels in excelsa beans range from 0.86 to 1.13g per 100g, compared to 1.2 to 1.5g for arabica and 2.2 to 2.7g for canephora.
· According to ICO statistics, Cameroonian coffee production fell by almost 50% between 2000 and 2010, dropping from over 65,000 to just over 36,000 tonnes. Production has remained low since 2010, never passing the 40,000 metric tonne mark. Its worst production year was 2014, when barely 22,000 tonnes of coffee were produced.

· During this time, the beans will absorb the cinnamon-infused water, giving it those tasting notes. Remove the coffee once ready, and let it dry to 11% moisture. You can use dehumidifiers or even your roaster (set to 35°C) and allow the coffee to dry out slowly. On the farm, the process is slightly different.
· It also estimates that antestia bugs can be found on as many as 98.7% of Rwandan coffee farms, meaning the potential that PTD will occur is extremely high. Mario explains how the potato aroma and flavour is produced. “The potato-like odour is caused by the high concentration of bacteria in contaminated beans,” he says.
· Coffee beans or granules are also required, of course, as well as a piece of wood to burn, and a cup. Place the bowl of water on top of the cooking device in …
