How Home Coffee Roasters Can Find Great Green Coffee Beans

In this weeks video I talk about How Home Coffee Roasters Can Find Great Green Coffee Beans. In many ways home coffee roasters have more information about sourcing green coffee beans than ever before thanks to the Internet. As many new home coffee roasters flood the coffee market, this is the perfect time to talk about how to find great green coffee beans to roast at home.

In my video, I share how home coffee roasters should avoid coffee sources that don’t provide details about the farm and the coffee. A country and a few tasting notes aren’t enough to help us find the right coffee for our needs. I show several examples of great coffee sources for the home roaster.
Whether you love to roast with a hot air popcorn popper or brew coffee with a clever dripper, finding the right coffee is important.
