10 Best Unroasted Coffee Beans
Primos 3-Pound Caturra
With a mild citrus acidity complemented by cacao notes, Primos 3-Pound Caturra produces a rich array of flavors at the recommended medium roast profile, although many prefer to heat their batches well past second crack for a dark, oily brew.
Martini Sampler Pack
The Martini Sampler Pack contains four single-sourced one-pound bags of Arabica beans from different countries so you can experiment and learn which you like best. Among the nations of origin are Colombia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Indonesia, and Brazil.
Volcano Adrano offers a mix of Yellow Catuai and Red Mundo Novo Arabicas bought directly from farmers in Poços de Caldas, Brazil. It excels in dark roasts, which draw out hints of caramel and chocolate, though some stop at first crack to enjoy a nutty, buttery profile.
Lavanta Sumatra Peaberry
You can expect hints of melon, tobacco, spice, and earthy tones from Lavanta Sumatra Peaberry , which is entirely made up of the rare oval beans that are produced when only one of the two seeds in a berry becomes fertilized.
Lulo Sidamo is wet-processed and dried only in morning and afternoon sun, kept in the shade during the middle of the day to avoid cracking from intense heat. Cupping notes include peach, kiwi, chocolate, and lemon-drop candy.
Morning Hills Yirgacheffe
Grown in iron-rich soils 1800-2200 meters above sea level in southern Ethiopia, Morning Hills Yirgacheffe owes its lively, floral taste to the elevation at which it’s cultivated. Try a light roast with the first batch to get a feel for how they toast.
Fresh Roasted Brazilian Cerrado
Labeled Climate Pledge Friendly, Fresh Roasted Brazilian Cerrado is an organic, fair trade option produced in a smokeless roasting environment to reduce carbon emissions. It has a strong, bold flavor with notes of cocoa and walnut.
Smokin' Beans Guatemalan
From the Finca Nueva Granada farm, Smokin’ Beans Guatemalan boast a flavor profile of dark chocolate, butter, cinnamon, toasted nuts, and raisins. The producers use the leftover coffee cherry pulp and organic matter as compost for further planting.
Heirloom Dota Estate
Heirloom Dota Estate is harvested from the famous Tarrazu region, which produces Strictly Hard Beans that are so dense that they take longer than usual to toast. Notes of brown sugar, fruit, and caramel give way to chocolate during darker roasts.
Stone Street Colombian Supremo
Stone Street Colombian Supremo uses the highest grade of Colombian beans, which are particularly large and create a sweet, medium-bodied brew. The resealable bag includes a one-way de-gassing valve to help maintain freshness.
