UK Green Beans Supplier

Recommended Posts

Hi all, new member (new to UK) and long time home roaster from NY. Ordered some beans from Hasbean, Redber and The Bean Shop 2 days ago and all arrived today. Will roast and report back. Seems like Hasbean has higher quality/rarer beans at a premium price, redber more generic beans (could be wrong, but unfamiliar with the fincas available from them) while the bean shop looks to be very high on a price/quality ratio.

Does anyone know where I can source some gesha varietals green? Hasbean has them but only roasted, and I haven't been able to find anything anywhere - panama, guatemala, bolivia, all would be ok cuz I love to experiment with them, especially as a highlight in a blend. I usually shop with sweetmaria.com but their shipping to UK is just too prohibitive.

Thanks all and really glad to have found you guys.

Let us know how it is. Do you have a moisture meter to test it? Look out for general defects aside from cup quality. I've had some beans in the past that were quite expensive but I must have pulled about 2kg worth of defects from a 10kg bag. What I roasted was really good though. I imagine it wouldn't have been so great had I not sorted through it.

Yet to roast. I'll have a bash tomorrow now you come to mention it.

So last weekend roasted the £4 per kilo beans. They were Brazilian Santos and aimed for medium roast. Using a pretty basic method and have been resting for the week. Smell of beans is good and just had it in a pour over. I think it's got good mouth feel with a little acidity. 

I'm new to it all so some will not go down this route of cheap beans but I'm happy with them and will order more from coffeeroger on eBay.
