Newbie Here - Best source for green coffee
dondford
Rank newbie here, please be gentle. I have received my first roaster (just a entry level Nesco, but it's working great so far and I will up-grade when the need arises.) Got 8 lbs. of assorted coffee and having a ball playing around with blends. I would like ask the members here for the best source(s) for green coffee beans. "Best" to me means good selection and service but with honest, affordable prices.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Don

Have you looked locally?

Many specialty roasting houses will sell you green un-roasted beans for around 40-50% below their roasted prices.

As a bonus they can advise you on how to roast what you are purchasing as they are also roasting the exact same beans on a daily basis.

I source a lot of my green coffee from my local artisan roaster. This helps them and the price is very close to online + shipping costs so it is a win win for both of us.

AND should I run out, it is faster to go down the street than wait for a package from the other coast.

always check locally before going out on the web. Support local and you are supporting your neighbors.

Don, there is a common misconception that excellent roasts can only come from expensive SO greens. The truth of the matter is that excellent results may be obtained from creative blends roasted with inexpensive greens.

If you look around, you may be surprised to discover local roasters who will be happy to sell you inexpensive greens that are capable of yielding great pulls.

Hey Don

Here is my take on green coffee buying.... others may have differing opinions.

I've ordered from sweetmarias for easily a decade. I know that any bean I buy from them is top of the line and carefully chosen with cupping and roast level notes. I know I could search around and find some slightly cheaper beans but whenever I order from SM it's guaranteed the beans and customer service will be world class.

Personally if I have the choice of basically the best beans in the world with absolutely no worries or save a couple bucks a # for (still good) beans I have to search around for "best" is a worth couple extra bucks to me. It would be a different story if I was roasting to sell and had to worry about price points and margins.

The one exception is if there is an interesting group buy that shows up on homeroasters - had a few and all were really good!

Just a humble salesman's 2¢

I buy from SM and have for a long time also.

The difference between SM and my local artisan is that I can sit down and enjoy a cup of pour over, a cup of press, and an espresso pull out of the bag of beans I am contemplating purchasing a few pounds out of as well as talking about the nuances of the roast and how to get the most out of this bean from that actual bag....

My local artisan roaster sources their beans directly so I get farm specific crop from someone who has purchased from the grower. I am sure that online distributors try to get this same "roast to dirt" relationship but I TRUST my local person as they are a friend, not a web page.

The local artisan roaster uses the same coffee roaster that I do (though mine is a tad smaller) so we can discuss roaster specific "tweaks" that I cannot get from an online source
