The Journey of the Coffee Bean

The focal point of the gourmet coffee roasting one must consider is the bean itself. No matter what type of flavor one chooses to add during roasting, if he started in the first place with an inferior quality of bean then he can only expect to get an inferior type of coffee.  Among the different varieties of coffee beans in the whole world, only two are at able to reach certain gourmet standards, these are the Arabica and Robusta beans.
