When placed inside the keg, the coffee beans will turn into coffee. Keep in mind that even if you’re a tiller, you’ll still not get any additional profit here. But if you choose to be an artisan, then you can turn coffee beans into thousands of gold real quick.
What is a coffee bean in Stardew Valley
Basically, a coffee bean is a seed that you can plant in order to harvest crops. As I’ve mentioned above, it takes 10 days for the plant to mature. It takes another 2 days to re-grow after being harvested.
Each plant can generate up to four (4) beans once every 2 days. You can also buy them from the Travelling Cart, but it’s not really recommended since it costs like 2.5 grand.

Coffee Bean vs. Coffee
I think this one’s a no-brainer. The coffee takes the spot here for the best overall profit-maker. When you preserve the beans into the keg and turn them into coffee, your base profit is basically 150g. It makes sense since you need 5 coffee beans to make a coffee.
If you opt for coffee, the base price is basically 150g. If you have the Artisan bonus, you can earn as much 210g per keg and it only takes two hours to brew them.
