  • Another Evil Experiment

    Occasionally I have. . .


    Daily I have evil. . .


    At least once every hour I have an evil thought. Quite often coffee related. This hours thought was: "I wonder if anyone has ground green beans for coffee flour, and if so would it have any use?"

    Thought number 2 followed rather quickly - "I wonder if you could quick roast coffee flour to create an instant coffee that was somewhat less nasty than nescafe?"


    Anyone ever hear of such idiocies being attempted?  If not Ill find a millstone and give it a go.

          Ive come up against the first obstacle - unroasted coffee beans are tough little buggers.

            Time to go back to basics - pestle and mortar?

              Probably too high a moisture content for grinding as a flour as well, and of course they wont taste anyting like their roasted brethren.

                Mortar and pestle was the first thing I tried - went to a powered solution when that failed. I know that the ground up flour would taste like crap but my reasoning is more along the lines of - ground up green beans could be flash roasted and brewed in almost a single process giving you a product that is both long life and real coffee-ish.

                I stress my own personal skepicism with the project - but Im very curious.

                    Just make sure they dont flash explode as fine powders have a tendency to do under some circumstances.

                        I got a bit concerned there - I thought he had arbitrarily tried using whole green beans as snuff - just placing his head in the mortar and pounding on his face with the pestle so that eh wouldnt lose even the smallest granules.

                        Knowing full well that multiple espressos cause dehydration, I made a small leap, intuitively, and guessed he wasnt concerned about cranial/facial damage at that point because of said dessication - but, apon reading further was only marginally reassured. . .

                        ;D

                        You might consider FFFG and a dark roasted Kenyan? It would give a new meaning to "Cowboy Up!"

                        Ill just watch. . .
