Review and Recipes: Sunup Green Coffee

Sunup Green Coffee

What’s green coffee? It’s coffee made using green, unroasted coffee beans in the brewing process. Sunup, which makes this beverage, says green coffee is good for your stomach, rich in antioxidants, gluten free, and organic. Sunup (generally consumed cold) comes lightly sweetened with sugar, though it still boasts to be only 80 calories. The natural caffeine present is about the same as drinking a normal iced coffee.

If you expect it to taste like a regular cup of coffee, you’ll be surprised. The coffee comes through only as a slight aftertaste; up front, it is more reminiscent of a tea. Chilled, it makes a great beverage to take on an afternoon in the park or to drink with lunch.
