Green beans are raw, unroasted coffee beans. Over the years, we have gotten more and more requests for green beans from all of those independent (and sometimes wacky) home roasters. You know who you are! These green beans need to be roasted before brewing (don’t try to grind or brew them raw! It is not an enjoyable experience!).
So here's a list of the different green beans (both Arabica and Robusta) available at the present time, along with some descriptions. Each origin has its own unique properties and flavors, and responds differently to various roast times and temps. Feel free to order several and make your own blends (you can use some of our blends as guides). Two custom espresso blends are available, as well. Check out our homeroasting guide for more information.
If you are interested in roasting your own beans, you can get started with something as simple and affordable as a popcorn maker! We offer the Whirley Pop as a starter roaster. Once you’re ready to dive in, we also sell a great homeroaster here – the FreshRoast SR500. I take this puppy with me on the Java Trail, and you should see the farmers' eyes light up as they see their own beans being roasted for the first time! Makes for a great cup, wouldn't you agree?
Disclaimer! We pack up the green beans we get directly from the farmers. Before they go into our roaster, we look through them to sort out rocks, sticks and little toy cars. We do our best to sort through the green beans, too, but it's something we do by hand and we are not perfect! Double check your beans before you roast them (and grind them!).
Please note: we do not offer wholesale or bulk discounts on our green beans.
