  1. Coffee beans are not beans they are fruit pits – A coffee bean is a seed of the coffee plant, and is the source for coffee. It is the pit inside the red or purple fruit often referred to as a cherry. Just like ordinary cherries, the coffee fruit is also a so-called stone fruit. Even though the coffee beans are seeds, they are referred to as ‘beans’.  When green coffee beans are roasted, other molecules with the typical pleasant aroma of coffee are generated, which are not present in fresh green coffee. During roasting, the major part of the unpleasant-tasting volatile compounds are neutralised.



2. Tomatoes added to roasts will help tenderize them naturally. Tomatoes contain an acid that works well to break down meats. Ginger is also a good tenderizer.: You’ll often find ginger listed as an ingredient in marinades, did you know it’s not just for its flavor? Ginger contains a proteolytic enzyme that naturally breaks down protein.

This is easy and delicious



  • 1 lb. salmon fillets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon garlic, minced

The rule of thumb is to cook for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness which is measured from the salmon fillet’s thickest point. That would be the middle.
