So you spilled your fresh roasted coffee beans on the floor…
Maybe just wash them.
Typically, when I roast coffee, I roast two different beans separately. It makes for a much better blend post-roast except when you knock over your basket because you weren’t paying attention.
I was really sad and emotional even though in terms of cost, it was $4, and in terms of time, it was 15 minutes. However, I don’t like wasting anything.
So I cleaned it up.
I saw a post in a forum that if you have green beans mixed in with roasted beans, you can put them in water. The green beans will float to the bottom. I figured if you could put roasted beans in water for that purpose, why not to rinse them off?
Then I put them on a tray and dried them with some paper towels.
I let them stay there for a bit.
Finally, I put them in a jar with some paper towels, and I removed them a few days later.
The coffee ended up tasting just fine, so I’m glad I didn’t just throw away the beans in careless act.
