I recently had an inquiry about coffee bean soup. I was intrigued. Coffee beans are the seeds of coffee cherries and real "beans". Since we roast some of our own beans, we have green (unroasted) beans on hand. So I made a coffee bean soup. While an interesting idea, a horrible result. The water takes on a intense dark green hue and turns very bitter, potent, and grassy. Additionally the beans hardly soften. If anyone has any coffee bean ideas for recipes let me know and maybe I'll try them out.
