Among the “5 Myths & Misconceptions About Coffee” shared by Wired, coffee beans aren’t even beans — they’re seeds:

“Technically, it’s the endosperm (pit) of a special kind of berry typically from the Coffea Arabica plant. Initially, it’s wrapped in a thin red fruit that’s peeled off during the cleaning process. Then it’s a light silvery green color until it’s shipped and roasted—eventually reaching your kitchen counter.”

Enjoy your seed juice the next time you wake up with Brian Ali and Justin. ☕
