Once ripe, coffee berries are picked, processed, and dried. The seeds are then roasted and ground. Coffee's odour absorbing qualities make it an excellent deodoriser. It is also an antioxidant with beneficial stimulatory effects on skin when applied topically.
Coffee beans that are irregular shapes and sizes are usually not sold but added to the compost heap! We buy irregular sized Australian certified organic coffee beans and use them in our products. They still smell like coffee and provide the same beneficial properties no matter their size! Irregular size does not mean irregular quality.
