How to Roast Raw Black Beans?

Coffee beans change color while roasting, from green to tan to brown. The longer the beans are roasted, the darker the brown color becomes. Roasted coffee beans never turn black, even if they are extremely dark brown. Although brewed coffee may appear black, beans never get completely black.

Coffee changes color from yellow or red to green and eventually brown as it progresses from crop to cup. The color of coffee indicates its stage of development, with brown coffee being suitable for eating. (While brewed coffee may appear black, beans never become completely black.)

Coffee that has been brewed can range in color from brown to virtually black, depending on the roast degree and the method used to prepare the coffee. If you were to hold a drop of any brewed coffee up to a light, you would most likely discover that it was truly brown. However, in a coffee pot or mug, the coffee may appear black. We can continue debating whether it is technically brown or actually black indefinitely without reaching a conclusion. It's preferable to simply drink it and request a refill.

Roasted coffee beans never turn black, even if they are extremely dark brown. If roasted beans turn black, they have been scorched and are therefore unsuitable for brewing. At this stage, they're essentially charcoal. Even the darkest roasts, such as those used in Italy, France, and Spain, do not convert the beans to black carbon.
