Coffee is a brewed beverage made from roasted coffee beans, the seeds of certain flowering plants in the Coffea genus, and the berries of certain flowering plants in the Coffea genus. The seeds are extracted from the coffee fruit to generate a stable, raw product: unroasted green coffee. The seeds are next roasted, transforming them into a usable product: roasted coffee, which is ground into small particles and steeped in hot water before being filtered out, resulting in a cup of coffee.
