It started in October 2017. A tree full of bloom. Then, the harvest in May 2018 and the long process of husking, macerating, drying. Then it stayed on the bench for...well nearly 3 months. Too scared to ruin it. Today I finally plucked the courage. I thought, well, sitting on the bench for nothing is just as ruined. What have I got to loose? So, out comes the pan and 50g start crackling and roasting. Then, sift the leftover husk. Grind. Heat water and brew. Mmmmh...not bad for a first attempt. All in all, it started with 2.4kg of berries. The end product: 300g of green beans ready to roast. It really makes you appreciate that cuppa.
