February 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #148: Coffee Berries

Tip of the Week

Coffee beans are the seeds of a berry that grows on trees. The coffee berries grow in clusters and are usually harvested once they turn red in color.

The coffee berries are difficult to chew so early coffee experimentation involved roasting the coffee beans to make them edible. Gradually, people began pouring hot water over the roasted coffee beans to make the well-known cup of coffee.
