When I first realized where coffee came from and what it looked like, I was shocked. I had no idea that coffee wasn't actually a bean! Here's a photo of what coffee actually looks like.
The little cherries in the photo are all picked by hand. Inside each cherry are usually two large and symmetrical seeds that face each other. That is what we somehow turn into a drink.
But long before it reaches the cup, there's a long process that each little coffee "bean" must go through.
This blog will serve as many things in the future, but most importantly, I'd like to visually show people where our coffee comes from, who produces it and how we get it into our cups every day.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more.
