No: The oil that is contained within the coffee bean is responsible for its distinctive flavor. Coffee oil can be green or roasted, but roasted coffee oil is truer to the aromatic "coffee experience."prior to roasting, the beans and the oil derived from them smells quite green and somewhat bitter. In fact, unroasted coffee beans are referred to as green coffee beans. Caffeine is water soluable.
