People in the coffee trade used to say that raw coffee was eternal, and we used to agree. The revised estimate is that green coffee lasts about a year from processing (assuming a six-month rotation of stock). We are unlike most green coffee sellers in that we do not have old stock; we are careful to make sure the coffee you receive is as fresh as possible. If we sell out of the previous crop year (something we always want to do) and new crop has not come in, we will not have that coffee until the new season.
