Most of us have seen pictures of the bright red coffee cherries — the fruit of the coffee plant.
While they look pretty sweet, inside each one is reasonably thin skin and flesh layer encasing a pair of hard green coffee beans.
Many folks wonder whether you can actually eat these rosy red cherries. Sure you can! However, it requires a lot of munching to get small amounts of sweet flesh from those tooth-cracking beans, which is why we prefer to process and roast those green beans into that elixir of happiness we know as coffee!
