|Folgers sell their dark roast for about $10.00 for 1.5 pounds. They boast that it serves 210 cups of coffee. Well, I'm boasting that this 5 pound bag of Peruvian Amazonian raw organic green coffee cost me $21.00 shipped to my door. That's approximately a little over 700 cups per bag. Folks it costs |
ONLY 3 cents per cup...and that's a deal!
|These beans were roasted using my old 1200W popcorn maker. The beans on the right were popped before the second crack. You can see they are light in color. The beans on the left popped until after the second crack. I stopped because I was smelling a strong espresso smell and started to smoke. I literally burnt the beans. lol. I am going for the lighter roast because in my research, I found out the darker the coffee, the less nutrients it has. That includes anti-oxidants, and caffeine. It gets burned off and destroys most of the natural oil content. Too bad because most folks like me like a dark roast.|
I write this post because gourmet coffee is not cheap outside of home. However, it costs just cents per cup literally speaking for this raw organic green coffee beans if you shop online. Best of all, when roasted lightly you get as much phyto-nutrients as a serving of blueberries. Furthermore, you get 4x the nutrients if you eat them lightly roasted. I plan on making a house blend by mixing green (raw), light, medium and dark roasts together so I can have nutrition and taste.
Well, that's about it for now, I hope you like my post. If so please stop and click like. Please feel free to share. Till then. Many blessings.
