It is a common coffee in such daily life, but Andy · George said he will try to brew coffee from the beginning to find out how much labor is needed to start from harvesting coffee beans.

Coffee beans can be grown only in tropical regions called "coffee belts".

In addition, the coffee bean of the mountains where the difference in temperature is big is smelled better than coffee beans, so it is said that there are many mountainous areas of good quality coffee.

I will go to Mexican coffee origin Oaxaca, relatively accessible from America, to procure beans.

I will take an airplane for 6 hours and then run the car over 8 hours in Mexico's slender and winding mountain path.

In the morning, departing by car and arriving at the small village Guadalupe it was completely dusked.

The next morning, George enters the mountain coffee plantation.

According to those working at coffee plantations, it will take four years for fruit to mature as coffee beans can be harvested.

"Every fruit looks red, but we need to pick out and pick only the fruits that are completely ripe red."

"This is OK, this is no good, this is no good ..."

George is sorting out red fruits as they are taught.

After breaking ripe fruit, raw coffee beans appeared from inside.

A few people picked fruit of coffee and said that the remaining person carries it to the place where the beans are washed.

Actually put it in the basket and take it out.

Because coffee plantations are in the mountains, it is hard work to come back and forth on steep slopes.

I stir.

Finally the completion of coffee beans.

A roasting process is essential for brewing coffee.

When roasting with a dedicated roaster, a dark brown coffee bean has been made while giving a good fragrance.

The depth of coffee beans changes depending on their length.

However, it is possible to smash coffee beans in a frying pan even without a dedicated roaster.

George who starts cooking coffee beans just as I learned.

Place the frying pan on a low heat and carefully stir it.

The color gradually changed.

Wait for a minimum of fire.

It is a signal that a coffee bean called "snap" sounds when a beep sounds.
