In short, coffee beans are roasted so that they become coffee as we know it. Without the roasting process, they are merely but a bean. Granted, that bean does possess all those unique qualities we associate with coffee but the flavor is non-existent until it is roasted.
To make your life easier, you can buy already roasted whole coffee beans, like the list that we provide you below.
What is the difference between whole beans and ground coffee? Easy.
The flavor of coffee is more intense (and waaaay better) if you ground it just before brewing your cup of coffee. Trust us, we know.
