I have had the radicle emerge on just about every bean type I tried to
germinate. The only beans that ever sprouted for me were still in parchment.
But this also is the beginning of the decaffeination process so I'm not
sure it will result in a better coffee. Elements were definitely leached
out of the beans during the soaking.
Try it! Let us know...
