Hello all. My fiance and I need some help. We are having a coffee-themed wedding, and we found a picture of the beans we like. The thing is, the picture didn't have the name of the beans with it. So, what do you all think it is?

A coffee themed wedding? ....That's certainly an unusual idea.

The beans in that generic photo can be anything you want them to be. Actually, the beans in the photo look like a mixture of a variety of sizes and roast colors.

You don't really need to know what kind of beans are in the photo....just pick something.

For example, you can say they're Moca Java or Papua New Guinea, or Mexican Highgrown, or Jamacian Blue Mountain, or any coffee bean that you want (except maybe a peaberry bean, which is an obviously smaller bean).

It looks like you copied the photo from a website. Most of the photos on websites only show the darkness of the roasted beans, and most websites probably use the same generic photos.

Good luck with the wedding planning. Will you have a coffee bar setup at the reception?
