Specialty Coffee Roasters/Cafes

I have asked a number of specialty coffee roasters in the past about supplying green beans for home use. They were generally quite surprised by the request and not that interested – it’s just not their business model. But, there are some who will happily – so it never hurts to ask the question!
A big plus to sourcing beans from a roaster or cafe is that you can often buy the same beans roasted, or even have a coffee or two, as a comparison for your own roasting/brewing efforts.

Amazon

There are quite a lot of stores selling green coffee beans on Amazon. My preference would be one of the specialty online stores listed below, because there tends to be more information provided about the beans, their characteristics and their origin. However, Amazon is a familiar, convenient and secure option. Here is an example of what you can find there:

Online Stores

There are a growing number of online stores selling green coffee beans in retail quantities – some specifically targeting the home roaster. DIYCoffeeGuy’s list of green coffee bean suppliers has been created with the aim of helping home roasters everywhere. So, if you know of one which is not on this list (or you would like to list your business), please submit a new green bean supplier or send a tweet tagging @DIYCoffeeGuy and your supplier, and include #greenbeanlist.

If you come across a listing which needs updating please let me know!
