Our Arabica Green Coffee Beans are procured from the famous Araku Valley, in the eastern ghats of South India.
Green coffee bean extract comes from Coffee beans before they’ve roasted. Coffee beans contain antioxidants known as chlorogenic acids, which are believed to help lower blood pressure and have weight loss benefits. When coffee is roasted, the chlorogenic acid content is greatly reduced, so drinking coffee is not the same as drinking the green coffee beans extract.
Apart from the weight loss properties, our Arabica green beans are also good for home roasting coffee.
