- 3 Tips to Selecting the Right Coffee Bean
To Create a Perfect Cup of Espresso
The rich, invigorating aroma that comes from freshly roasted coffee beans is something that all
coffee connoisseurs delight in smelling, even taking a deeper breath
so as to enjoy the full body of the aroma.
So how do you select the best coffee
bean to create such a desirable coffee aroma and taste? There are a few important points
to keep in mind to ensure that you select the best quality beans and are able to produce a tasty, full-flavored cup
of espresso coffee.
This is how a "Perfect Espresso" is made.
Many people think that you can purchase pre-roasted coffee beans in the supermarket and still end up with a
delicious, fresh tasting coffee. The fact is though that once coffee beans have been roasted they lose their
freshness in about a week.
Most, if not all, of the roasted coffee beans sitting on the shelf in supermarkets
have long past their period of freshness. So what is the answer?
The best way to end up with a fresh coffee bean is to find a produce store,
coffee specialty shop or fresh produce market that sells green coffee beans.
Unlike roasted beans that only maintain their freshness for around a week after
roasting; the green coffee beans stay fresh for years. So this is the first point to keep in mind. As long as you
always purchase unroasted, green coffee beans you are on the right track
to creating a perfect cup of coffee.
The next thing to decide is the type of coffee
bean you prefer. The best-known coffee bean is the Arabica bean, which is preferred for
premium coffee blends. The next best-known coffee bean is Robusta. Cheaper, commercial coffee manufacturers often
use Robusta beans to produce their coffees.
This is especially true for instant coffee producers. In total around 20% of all
coffee produced around the world is Robusta and 75-80% is Arabica. For average tasting coffee the Robusta bean is
suitable, but coffee connoisseurs definitely prefer Arabica coffee.

The next step is to determine the specific growth locations of the Arabica beans
that you prefer. Each different coffee growing region around the world creates its own unique properties in the
coffee bean, depending on the conditions during the growth of the beans.
Such factors as climatic conditions actually have an impact on the properties of
the beans. So each growth region has its own distinct flavor and aroma characteristics.
You can perform further research to determine the
growth region/s you want to use for your first coffee creation. It is possible that you may want to select more
than one growth region and variety and to then create a coffee blend from these different varieties.
As you progress and continue to make new blends you will discover the coffee
growth regions that give you your preferred espresso coffee flavor and aroma.
It is also important to keep in mind that once you have selected your preferred
coffee beans you will need to decide how you are going to roast these beans. Some coffee drinkers mix their
selected beans before roasting.
While other coffee connoisseurs prefer to keep the different beans separated until
after roasting, as they say that this method keeps the characteristics of each specific bean variety distinct. It
is only at the coffee grinding stage that the beans are blended together.
So in summary the points to keep in mind when selecting the best
coffee bean to create a masterpiece cup of espresso coffee are:
Select unroasted, green coffee beans,
Select Arabica coffee beans,
Choose the specific variety or varieties of Arabica bean that you prefer.
