The size of the beans depends on the climate, season and type of coffee.
- Often, the higher the coffee grows, the smaller the bean is, but its flavor is more vibrant.
- If there was too little rain in a particular season, the percentage of small beans in the crop will increase.
- Different varieties of trees are characterized by a harvest of different sizes of berries.
Coffee is often indicated solely by its appearance. Someone believes that large beans contain more flavor and aroma components, which means that such coffee is tastier and more expensive. Actually, it is not always like this.
In the current coffee grading system the bean size isn’t mentioned. Sometimes, among the beans of the same coffee, small beans outperform larger ones.
