Deciding on Green Beans
Green coffees can vary widely in taste according to the type of bean selected, how each farm prepares the beans, and the way the beans are processed. Before buying any coffee, we receive samples from our importers (who have received them directly from the farms). These samples are then inspected while green, roasted on site, and then cupped for quality. These are called pre-ship samples. Once a shipment comes into the country, we then repeat this process of inspection, roasting, and cupping before we will accept a shipment of coffee. This process ensures that we receive only the highest quality coffees and that each and every single origin has the profile that we are looking for.
