Coffee leaves tea, or "kuti," had been made in Ethiopia and Indonesia for centuries. It has an earthy, herbaceous flavor with notes of sweetgrass, similar to green tea. Coffee leaves contain more antioxidants than blueberries, chocolate or green tea.
Coffee is made using the beans, or seeds, of the coffea plant. When the coffee fruits (or coffee cherries) are harvested, the beans are removed and processed using either wet or dry methods. The beans are then roasted to the desired strength and flavor profile before being ground and brewed into the popular beverage. Coffee beans vary wildly in flavor based on climate, elevation, preparation, and soil properties, just like tea. The leaves of the coffea plant can also be brewed into tisanes, which boast lower caffeine and a milder, more herbal flavor than the beans.
