Coffee bean: 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. Even though they are seeds, they are referred to as 'beans' because of their resemblance to true beans. The fruits - coffee cherries or coffee berries - most commonly contain two stones with their flat sides together. A small percentage of cherries contain a single seed, instead of the usual two. This is called a "peaberry." The peaberry is more unusual occurring only between 10 and 15 percent of the time, and it's a fairly common belief that they have more flavour than 'normal' coffee beans. Like Brazil nuts and white rice, coffee beans consist mostly of endosperm.

  • also known as Zrno kafe, Kávészem, Kavino zrno, Sjemenka kave, Kávový bob, Σπέρμα καφέας
