Coffee beans

We review and recommend a wide range of quality coffees, including single-origin and decaffeinated beans, as well as single-serve pods.

Coffee beans are the seeds of coffee cherries. They are dried and roasted to produce the roasted coffee beans or pre-ground coffee we use on espresso machines and other coffee brewing methods. There are a few types of coffee beans, and they vary in taste, aroma, and caffeine content.

Arabica is the most popular type of bean used in commercial coffees. Robusta is another type that many people like because it has a stronger flavor than Arabica. In recent years, there has been an increase in demand for single-origin coffees that have a more complex flavor profile because they have been sourced from specific regions.
