The Fascinating Journey of Coffee Beans (Cherries): From Farm to Cup with Chickadee Coffee Roaster

Introduction: Join us on an exciting adventure as we dive into the vibrant world of coffee cherries - the colorful and flavorful gems that lay the foundation for your daily cup of joy. From the lush coffee farms to your favorite mug, let's explore the journey of these tiny fruits and discover the secrets they hold.

The Story Behind Coffee Cherries: Coffee cherries, also known as coffee berries or coffee fruits, are the fruit of the coffee plant (Coffea). They grow in clusters on coffee trees, thriving in tropical regions with ample rainfall and sunshine. Each cherry contains one or two coffee beans nestled within layers of skin, pulp, and mucilage.

The Harvesting Process: The journey begins with the careful handpicking of ripe coffee cherries by skilled farmers. This labor-intensive process requires precision and patience, as only the fully ripened cherries are selected for harvesting. Did you know? It takes an average of 2,000 coffee cherries to produce just one pound of coffee beans!

From Farm to Roastery: After harvesting, the coffee cherries undergo a meticulous sorting process to ensure only the highest quality cherries make their way to the roastery. Once sorted, the cherries are washed, pulped, and fermented to remove the outer layers and reveal the precious coffee beans within.

The Roasting Ritual: At Chickadee Coffee, we take pride in roasting our beans to perfection, unlocking their unique flavors and aromas with precision and care. Our expert roasters work their magic, transforming the green coffee beans into rich, flavorful gems ready to be brewed into your favorite cup of joe.
