 Green coffee is gaining popularity, especially among those, who want to live healthily. Some people consider it even to be one of superfoods. We can find it in a lot of dietary supplements, especially in these intended for people who want to be slim or lose some weight. The main difference between green and black coffee is the way they are prepared. The green coffee isn’t being roasted. The effects it evokes are more similar to green tea, so it’s a product with pro-health properties.

What is green coffee?

Green coffee is nothing else than not roasted Robusta coffee beans. Chlorogenic acid with a strong antioxidant effect is the most valued substance contained in green coffee. In case of black coffee this acid decomposes under the influence of temperature. Since the green coffee beans aren’t roasted, they keep all their valuable properties in contrast to black coffee, where they can’t be found. The coffee beans contain about 250 various chemical compounds. Among them, of course, is caffeine, a substance with stimulating effects. Not roasted beans are rich in caffeic and salicylic acid. There is also vitamin B, minerals like potassium and magnesium, tannins, or essential oils. In a 100-gram portion of beans, we can find 11 g of proteins, 30 g of carbohydrates with most of them being dietary fiber. Also, there is just 13 g of fat.

The taste of a drink made from green coffee beans is milder than the one of the black coffee, but you can still feel slight bitterness. Green coffee is available in a few forms. You can buy beans, ground coffee, or pills. Freshly ground coffee beans allow you to obtain the best taste and aroma. If you don’t have a coffee grinder at home, or you want to find a perfect balance between convenience, time spent on preparing coffee and the taste, the best option for you will be the ground coffee.  It is worth ensuring the high quality of the coffee. In this case, the very best option will be to buy it in small portions, straight from the coffee roaster to prevent the coffee from drying out. The longer the ground coffee is stored, the more value, flavor and aroma it loses. It is recommended to buy coffee only from reliable sources, reputable brands, and preferably with an eco certificate.

What properties does green coffee have?

Generally, people drink coffee because they want to feel the effects of caffeine. It has a stimulating effect on the body – it results in energy boost and better concentration. Green coffee contains chlorogenic acid that has a very good antioxidant properties. It neutralizes the free radicals, substances responsible for the acceleration of aging processes of the body cells. Chlorogenic acid also has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. It prevents the development of atherosclerotic and neoplastic changes. This acid is also responsible for a reduced absorption of carbohydrates from the food. It also facilitates the reduction of adipose tissue, and this way helps to maintain a slim figure. Green coffee has a protective effect on the liver, strengthens the immune system, supports weight loss, lowers cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. Supports the production of bile acids and the work of the digestive system. Green coffee is also valued for its inflammatory and antiseptic properties.

咖啡是咖啡樹叢中的果實。起初,這種灌木只在非洲生長,然後蔓延到世界各地。咖啡的種植 – 發生在所謂的“咖啡帶”中,位於北迴歸線和北迴歸線之間的數十個國家。適度的恆溫,充足的陽光,肥沃的土壤和適量的咖啡種植園,所有這些都轉化為最終效果,即咖啡的味道和香氣。作物的高度非常重要,海拔高於種植園,咖啡獲得的果實越多,味道變得越來越樸實,平淡無奇。完美的阿拉比卡咖啡生長在海拔800-1200米以上。世界咖啡生產的領導者是巴西,由於有超過30萬個種植園,每年生產近250萬噸咖啡。它是世界產量的1/3。目前,越來越多的人關注負責任的農業,天然肥料和適當的工作條件。如果你真的想要它,也許你可以在家裡種一棵咖啡樹,但如果它們出現,你應該等待至少三到四年的水果。
