Green coffee is an earthy, lightly caffeinated drink made with raw green coffee beans. Alongside a variety of health benefits, this unusual drink has an interesting flavor! It's also incredibly easy to make...
First, you’ll want to soak your green beans overnight. Use about one heaping tablespoon of beans per cup of water. The water will begin to turn green immediately. Leave your beans covered on the counter.
When you’re ready to brew, pour your beans and the water they’ve been soaking in into a pot. Bring the liquid to a boil, and then turn it down to a simmer. Leave your pot simmering on low for 15 minutes.
Your liquid will now be fragrant and green. Turn off the heat and let it cool.
When it’s completely cool, pour your green coffee through a filter to catch the beans and any chaff, the beans’ outer skin, that has come off in the cooking process. You can use any type of filter that you have on hand, including metal, paper, or cloth. Keep in mind that the filter you use may alter the flavor slightly.
Enjoy! You can drink your concentrated green coffee straight, dilute it with water, or add honey or sugar to taste.
This process will produce very concentrated green coffee. Store any extra green coffee in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
