It is well known that the freshness of cooked coffee beans will affect the flavor of the coffee, and the flavor of fresh coffee beans will be fuller. Therefore,"freshness"has naturally become people's preferred goal! The same was true for raw coffee beans, but their judgment wasn't just time!

"New beans,""old beans,""old beans,"is the name people give different freshness coffee beans. Therefore, the front street article to share is, new, old beans is how to distinguish?

How are new beans, old beans and old beans judged? New Corp. is actually very easy to understand, as the name implies, is "new season coffee beans"! Generally speaking, the difference between fresh coffee beans is whether it belongs to the new season! But here involves a big misunderstanding: Many friends will think that "new season coffee beans"refers to the coffee beans picked in the current season. Not really!

Since most of our domestic fine coffee beans need to be imported from abroad, it takes nearly a few months to pick, process, and transport to hand. It was two or three months, and it was half a year. The harvest season in many coffee producing areas will be from the end of October to January of the following year, according to the most conventional sea transportation, raw beans can be obtained at least until April to June of the following year. So this period has spanned a year according to the timeline, but in fact the coffee beans we received and drank are the latest coffee beans. Therefore, everyone's understanding of new beans, new season can not be confused with the normal timeline!

After understanding new beans, Past Corp is easy to understand ~ Old beans refer to raw beans harvested in the previous season or stored for more than a year (365 days). The biggest difference between them and new beans is the difference in moisture content! Freshly picked raw coffee beans after treatment, the moisture content will be controlled in the range of 11% to 13%. Because in this range, raw coffee beans can be stored for a long time. Beyond this range, raw beans will become moldy, which is not friendly to beans that need to be transported for a long time! As time goes by, the moisture content will gradually decrease! When the moisture content of raw coffee beans drops from the original (11%~ 13%) to (10%~ 11%), it means that it has become an old bean ~ and then stored for a period of time, the moisture content drops to (9%~ 10%), it becomes an old bean (Old Corp)! Old beans meant that these raw beans had been stored for more than two years, and their weight and quality had been greatly reduced compared to the previous two! Therefore, the time to cook it will be very short, and the performance of the flavor is not optimistic! Of course, except for some specific aged coffee beans, although stored for a long time, the flavor is still outstanding! This was because they were like bacon, which had been deliberately prolonged by people!

Old coffee beans, or "old beans"for short? Most of the old beans are stored for more than three years, but! They don't belong to old beans and taste no worse than old beans. Just as I said before, it was like bacon, which was the result of people's deliberate treatment! Conventionally treated coffee beans are extremely susceptible to decay and mold after three years of storage. Even if they do not decay, the flavor has long disappeared. After the special treatment, the old beans were stored for three years, which was only the beginning. Therefore, the difference between new, old, old and old beans is like this ~ We should not just recognize the year of a bean and mistake it for an old bean; Chen beans and old beans are not the same type. About the old coffee beans, save it for the next time, the front street will come slowly ~-END-
