The Green Coffee Revolution
A distinct aroma and a bold or subtle flavor make a coffee connoisseur appreciate a fine cup.
Philippines’ own Green Bean Organic Coffee Company says ‘count us in’ as it takes pride in producing an original taste of specialty coffee that competes with the finest in the world when it comes to taste and health benefit.
Green coffee beans are known in between the harvesting and the roasting. In fact, it’s the most traded commodity in the world along with crude oil and gold.
It’s considered world’s best specialty coffee product. Behind its best tasting authentic local beans are Filipino farmers working hard in the rich coffee beans farms in Philippine provinces, particularly the Caraga, Cavite and Davao del Norte.
Green Bean Organic Coffee boasts a unique taste of its product with a rare combination of naturally selected, naturally “processed” and finely roasted coffee beans found all over these provinces. What’s unique with Green Bean Organic Coffee Company is that its outlet is considered a coffee company more than just a store where each outlet serves a world of superb brewed specialty coffee.
Green Bean Organic Coffee Company
It started with a vision of putting up an alternative melting pot that’s truly Filipino among friends and business associates. This inception took place in 2012 among a group of coffee enthusiasts.
After a fantastic concept, the first outlet was introduced to the market in November that year within the Philippines’ central business district – Makati. This initial outlet paved way to introduce flavored coffee beans in the Philippines.
It houses all the coffee and tea paraphernalia and freshly ground coffee beans. Green Bean Organic Coffee Company has then redefined specialty coffee. It presently runs 55 outlets in the Philippines and it expects more to open. Each outlet is designed with wood crafts and green beans that are native to Philippines.
More importantly, it serves customers with care that stems from an intensive two-week training period of baristas about product knowledge and the art of coffee-making, service and selling.
Antioxidant, weight loss factor
Green coffee bean has been gaining attention as a weight loss and antioxidant element according to a recent study of Gastroenterology Research and Practice.
While traditional black coffee is made from roasted coffee beans, green coffee drink is made using the unroasted or “green” coffee beans.
Extracts from green coffee beans have proven many health benefits in scientific studies.
The main components of green coffee bean responsible for these benefits are caffeine and chlorogenic acid, a type of antioxidant.
It contains polyphenols, producing this type of acid, which, like grape seed extract and green tea, has antioxidant that help the body neutralize harmful free radicals.
The presence of chlorogenic acids in green coffee bean help manage diabetes and blood pressure levels effectively.
The study also presented that chlorogenic acid antioxidants in green coffee beans could also prevent the proliferation of four kinds of cancer cells, suggesting green coffee may be useful in preventing some types of cancer.
It was also observed that in addition to antioxidant benefit, green coffee bean extract is effective against weight gain and fat accumulation by preventing fat absorption and activating fat metabolism in the liver.
