Quality Italian Coffee
A coffee bean is actually the seed of a coffee cherry. In its natural state coffee is yellow green in color which turns red when "ripe" and is smaller in size than after being roasted. Through the roasting process the seeds turn into the vibrant brown color we are accustomed to, because the sugars within the seeds are pulled to its surface, caramelizing it.

has it, that in the ninth century there was once a shepherd named Kaldi who lived in a small village in Ethiopia. One day he noticed his goats running around and dancing with great energy.
After observing them, he found that the goats had been eating some small red fruits from one of the bushes on his land. When the shepherd tasted one of the fruits, his vitality and energy were substantially renewed.
This lead to the discovery of the coffee bean seed and the beverage so many around the world love!
