Bean Know Your Beans

If you're a coffee nut like me, you probably already know your beans and know them well. I can drink a cup of coffee and tell you what kind of beans were used, you probably can to.

There are over 30 species of coffee beans available today, but the two most popular ones are Arabica and Robusta. The differences between Arabica and Robusta coffee beans are as different as night and day. If you are an avid coffee drinker then you probably already know the differences when comparing the two different and distinct coffees. Arabica beans have a much more delicate, finer taste; their flavor is richer, and more full-bodied. While the Robusta bean has less flavor yet twice the caffeine.

To understand this difference it is important to understand their cultivation. Arabica beans are grown at higher attitudes, and are more difficult to harvest. When the Arabica bean matures it falls to the ground and must be harvested within a short period of time.
If it is not harvested quickly it will spoil. The Robusta bean is grown in abundance and very well in both high and low altitudes, this makes them quite available in huge quantities. Both Arabica and Robusta beans grown in tropical climates. The comparison is an easy one to make both in cultivation and that desired taste and the fresh roasting process by Bello Montana makes the bean even BETTER!

Bean You know you have had too much coffee when...

You can type sixty words a minute with your feet.

You chew on other people's fingernails.

You answer the door, before people knock.

You go to sleep, just so you can wake up and smell the coffee.

You don't even wait for the water to boil anymore.

You lick your coffee pot clean.

You are so wired you pick up FM radio.

You have a picture of your coffee mug, on your coffee mug.

Bean Which Has Been Around Longer Coffee Or Tea?

This is an interesting question that we can only rely on history to reveal the answer to. Both coffee and tea may have been around forever. But, when it was introduced as a drink to society is another question altogether.

The first mention of coffee as a drink is found in the year 1000 A.D. When members of the Galla tribe in Ethiopia found when they ate a particular berry ground up, mixed with animal fat it gave them an energy boost. That same year Arab leaders took coffee back to their homeland, began to boil the beans making a drink they called "qahwa", (meaning that which prevents sleep). First coffee house in the world opens in Turkey in 1475.

Tea also has a long-standing history of consumption. History tells us that tea began its history of consumption in ancient China over 5,000 years ago. When an early emperor, Shen Nung, skilled ruler and creative scientist boiled water as a hygienic precaution, and used dried tea leaves for flavor. However, the first known teahouse did not open until the 1600s in London.

This question is one that has been asked for centuries, the answer depends on who you ask. I'll stick to my coffee!

Bean The Perks For Drinking Coffee

If you never thought drinking coffee was truly good for you, think again. I just read the following in FORBES magazine and I just gained some ammo for my partner when he wants to start the argument with me that green tea is sooOOOOo much better.

I know green tea is good for you, but it just tastes like hot water to me... and then if I add lemon to it, it tastes like hot water with a lemon floating in it.... I love Bello Montana Coffee..... glad to know coffee has some definite "perks" for those of us javajunkies that love it! This is from FORBES:

It's believed that a couple cups of coffee may help open airways for those with asthma. Though it should never be used to replace traditional asthma medicine, the caffeine in coffee is similar to a medicine called theophylline, which is used to treat asthma symptoms.

Coffee is known to increase concentration and short-term memory, so it can also help the brain function better while on long flights. Coffee's ability to make a person more alert will also help adjust a person's internal clock in a new time zone.

Caffeine's target region in the brain is the prefrontal cortex--the area associated with short-term memory. In this area, the brain compares current experiences with experiences stored in long-term memory--a pattern linked to creative thinking. Coffee is believed to be a cognitive enhancer and an aid in concentration, especially on intellectual tasks.

The most common reason people drink coffee (other than for pleasure) is to stay alert--especially in the morning. Research shows that coffee works best if spread throughout the course of the day. For instance, instead of drinking two cups at once, have one cup in the morning and another an hour or two later.

Studies show that the caffeine in coffee improves performance and endurance during intense physical exercise. Caffeine is also shown to boost short-term athletic performance and to help enhance concentration through it's effect on brain receptors. It's also known to slightly increase metabolism, which can help people lose weight

Studies link coffee drinking and the prevention of degenerative diseases. Research shows that the more coffee a person drinks, the lower their risk is of developing Parkinson's disease. Studies show those who drink coffee on a daily basis may also be 60% to 80% less likely to develop Parkinson's.

Doctors at the Harvard School of Public Health discovered that men who drink four or more cups of caffeinated coffee per day have a lower risk of developing gallbladder stones. Over the course of a decade, the study followed more than 45,000 men who had not had gallbladder stone problems. The reason for this preventative effect is still unknown.

Bean Brewing The Perfect Cup.

Brewing a simply perfect cup of coffee can be perfectly simple, if you stick to some basic guidelines:

Buy quality whole beans from a reliable purveyor (preferably a roaster). If you don't have a grinder at home, ask a salesperson to grind whole beans for you rather than settling for pre-ground.

Purchasing bulk (unpackaged) beans from a specialty shop is okay as long as the bins or jars are relatively small and refilled regularly. Large vats hold a lot of beans and therefore don't need frequent filling. That means that beans can hang around for a long time being exposed to light and air. That can mean stale beans, and staleness is not a desirable attribute.

Bello Montana coffee is roasted only after the order is placed so the beans are always fresh and flavor packed.
Purchase pre-packaged whole beans only when sealed in a foil-style bag featuring a one-way degassing valve. Every bag of Bello Montana coffee comes in the foil-style bag designed with the one-way valve to ensure the customer receives the highest quality roasted beans.

The dime-shaped plastic valve is usually integrated into the packaging so that it will be as unobtrusive as possible, so check carefully. The absence of a valve means that the coffee probably sat and "gassed out" before it was packaged. That means it could be stale. Stale, again, is not a good thing. And remember: paper bags with twist tops are temporary transportation vessels, not storage devices.

Try to purchase only a week's worth of beans at a time. Bello Montana Coffee offers its customers fresh roasted beans, delivered to your door on a weekly basis, bi-weekly, or monthly basis! Unopened one-way valve bags will keep coffee fresh for up to two weeks.

Store your coffee in an airtight, opaque container and stored it at room temperature.

Grind coffee as close to brewing time as possible. Regardless of your brewing method, brew using 2 heaping tablespoons of coffee for each 6 ounces of clean (filtered or bottled), cool water. If you prefer a milder cup, brew to full strength, and then dilute with hot water. Brewing with too little coffee will result in over-extraction, and that means bitterness. If you really want to taste the subtle nuances of regional coffees, consider a gold mesh filter. When purchasing a coffee maker (either manual or electric), look for a model that brews into a thermal carafe rather than a glass pot designed to sit on a heating element. Continuous heating of coffee leads to bitterness.

Bello Montana coffee will be the new love in your life after just one cup! Share the love! Send a bag to a special friend that would love a special treat!
