King Bean Coffee Field Trip!

Yesterday, Thursday February 20th, staff from the Old Village Post House, Slightly North of Broad and High Cotton Charleston gathered at King Bean Coffee to tour the facility. They created our special Maverick Blend decaffeinated and regular coffee which has been served in all our restaurant locations for many years. King Bean opened in 1994 and we have been doing business with them since then! We all learned many new things about the process of roasting coffee, including the fact that coffee beans are actually green until roasted! Also, when a coffee seed is planted, it takes five years to yield its first consumable fruit! Here are a couple pictures from the tour.

Did you know that coffee beans are green? The brown hue comes from roasting.
