So you did your Google search for coffee beans and found a lot of pages.
But they’re all wrong. Including this one.
You see, they’re not coffee beans at all.
How to explain this… think about a cherry. The stone inside is the seed. And that’s what a coffee bean actually is — a coffee seed. But it looks like a bean.
I can’t find a reference to explain when and why this happened. But it did.
Now you know.
