Unlike the roasted form of Coffea arabica beans, our Peruvian "green", i.e. unroasted, coffee beans of the same species retain all the nutritious and invigorating benefits of the raw coffee plant. Green coffee naturally contains about 2% caffeine.
Although green coffee is brewed just like roasted coffee, its taste is mild, bitter, and quite unlike the flavour we often associate with coffee. Green coffee powder, however, makes an excellent addition to smoothies and shakes.
