Looking to try a roast with beans from Ecuador
Randy
Anyone know of a source? All the sites I found are either sold out or you have to buy 60 kilos...

Koffee Kosmo
If you are in the USA
Try Sweet Maria's

Don't forget that coffee is a seasonal product and availability is also dependant on how much is produced in a particular region

Hey Randy

You're going to have a tough time with that even when it's shipping season (and as KK said above the beans are seasonal.

Here's a good link from SM with some harvest/shipping schedules for major producers. https://legacy.sw...etable.php

Here's the other issue with Ecuador and why I've never had my hands on anything I wanted to try (and I love roasting from places I've never roasted before). Almost all their exports are instant coffee and most green is robusta or low quality arabica - think not specialty grade. The gvt $ goes into robusta/low quality arabica If you want to read more this link (the whole site really) is good http://www.cafeim...in_ecuador

If you want to go through some effort you could always head over to greencoffeebuyingclub buy a whole bag and get a group purchase going.

Thanks for the info and the links, they were really informative. I am just learning about bean grades, size and density and how it relates to the roast...the more I learn about coffee, the more I realize I need to learn more...

Sweet Maria's is the site to check. Their database shows when these new crops are available.
