How Much Do Coffee Beans Cost?

The coffee bean is not actually a bean, but the seed of the coffee plant.   Even though these coffee beans are referred to as a seed, they are called “beans” because of the resemblance to a true bean definition.  These beans that are brewed are actually the processed and roasted seed, also known as a coffee cherry.
