How Coffee Beans are Grown?

Coffee goes through several stages before it arrives at our doorstep or at a neighborhood cafe, ready to be brewed. In this essay, we will examine how coffee develops, beginning with all the coffee cherry and working our way into the tree.

Coffee Beans Are Pits of Coffee Cherries

Coffee beans are the stalks of coffee cherries, which slightly resemble grapes. Coffee cherries mature over a few months following a blossom has lasted for about a month. During their maturation, the cherries improvement from a bright green to pink, crimson, dark crimson, purple and, finally, black. This process for Arabica varietals takes approximately five to six months.

Mothers who provide the best lots selectively select their cherries if every cherry is dark reddish. Black ones are rotten, as well as purple ones are beyond their prime. Many farmers can not afford the labor costs of numerous pickings, so that they strip select their crops. In strip picking, all the coffee cherries are selected at once. Many farmers, for example Luiz Rodrigues of Fazenda California, use machinery to pick their coffee without needing high labour costs. This creates a ripe lot, but it requires harvesting equipment.

In the majority of coffee-producing nations, older trees produce one crop of cherries each year. In certain countries that don't possess as well-defined a dry season, but there are two harvests, a main and a secondary one. Colombia is one particular country.

Pepperoni and blueberry pizza

If it works for pineapple...

...it doesn't necessarily work for blueberries. There's nothing bad about it, but blueberries just don't hold up as well as pineapple as a topping. Their flavor's not as strong and they might as well not be there. Maybe they don't have the sharp acidity that makes pineapple stand out.

I don't know how they are all facing the same direction. I just tossed them randomly. My strange luck again.

The recipe was simple: Preheat oven to 500° F., oil the pan with avocado oil, spread out the dough, lay the sauce, sprinkle with ground black pepper and green chili flakes, cover with shredded mozzarella, lay the pepperoni, cover with more mozzarella, lay the blueberries, and bake for 10 minutes.

Coyoty makes eggnog overnight oats.

Eggnog Overnight Oats

A convenient breakfast for the holidays when you've got the eggnog and you don't want to make breakfast tomorrow.

Mix up 1/3 cup rolled or old-fashioned oats, some fruit or nuts (I used slivered almonds, pecans, and coconut), a pinch of salt, 1/4 cup eggnog, and 1/3 cup milk, sprinkle cinnamon on top, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. The next morning all the liquid will be absorbed and the oats will be soft and sweet from the eggnog, so no sugar needs to be added.

If you don't have eggnog, you can use other dairy such as milk, kefir, or yogurt. You can also mix in wheat germ, chia seeds, and other healthy fillers.
