Green coffee has a much milder, lighter flavor than regular coffee, and when it’s made properly it has a bit of thickness to it. Some describe the taste as “grassy” or compare it to that of green or herbal tea, but it’s not quite the same. It’s also more acidic than roasted coffee.
Green coffee is the completely unroasted, pure, and grassy-flavored bean produced inside the pods (or cherries) of a Coffea shrub. Each pod contains a pair of green coffee beans (or seeds).
