Sweet Maria's would like to be your information source and green coffee supplier for your home coffee roasting adventures. Home roasting is easy! It only takes 5 to 15 minutes and your reward is the freshest coffee around. It requires no fancy equipment and green coffee from Sweet Maria's is half the price of good roasted coffee from a retailer. We have a huge selection of green coffees, each carefully cupped and rated for quality.
We are more than just another online store, we are a virtual coffee university. Simply put, we really like what we do ...
Green Coffee Beans
We are very proud of our unroasted green coffee selection of 50+ types. Each is meticulously cup-rated, and selected from particular current crop lots, representing the "best of the best!"
- March 2, 2015: Starting off the week with a few new coffees, including the return of Sweet Marias Moka Kadir Blend. This is a short run - just a few hundred pounds in total - based around a small amount of Yemen we came across. We hope this helps to tide folks over a bit until new crop in the coming months. A couple new Africa coffees are available too - Burundi Muyinga Butobwe, a spiced cup, molasses sweetness, sharing many characteristics with our Rwandas - and Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Grade 1 Haraicha is a fruit-forward coffee, syrupy sweet and loaded with jam-fruit top notes. A new Peru adds a welcome presence from Central America, Peru FTO Diomer Chavez Perez, while we wait for fresh crop from Guatemala and El Salvador. And lastly two new Indonesia coffees, Java Buan Rongkup a wet-process coffee, and a classic giling basah Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry. Both coffees are from the same group, heading projects in Indonesia that are quality-focused and producing some of the best examples of coffees from these regions. Look for a few more new additions at the end of this week!
- February 13, 2015: We're finishing out the week with two and two: Africa and Indos. Rwanda Rulindo is the final lot from our first Rwanda container, showcasing true dual-purpose - complex cocoa and spices, subtle fruit notes make great brewed coffee and espresso. And Zimbabwe Chipinge is a mild cup, but with reverberating sweetness, perhaps has more in common with Latin American coffee than African! We also just received a fresh shipment from Java, with Sunda Kamojang being the first addition. At City+, it achieves sorghum syrup sweetness with a nice mix of dark chocolate and walnut. And last but certainly not least, Sumatra Dry Hulled Pantan Murara is a unique, fully washed Sumatra coffee. The profile is loaded with dark sugar flavors, and a smattering of fruited notes. It's heavy on the palate, and unlike wet-hulled coffees, earth tones are much more background than up-front pectin sweetness.
- February 6, 2015: Ethiopia Dry Process Yirga Cheffe Cheleba is a nice later arrival Ethiopia new to our list. With actual "new crop" Ethiopias still a few months out, this fruit-forward cup rounds out our Ethiopia offers nicely. The profile is loaded with berry and fruit punch flavors, pectin sweetness, and a nice cocoa finish. We also added two South American coffees, and both make great espresso options too. Brazil Fazenda IP Yellow Bourbon is pulp natural processed coffee, so while fruit flavors do show in the profile (especially when cool), it is much more oriented around flavors of burned sugar and cocoa. And Nicaragua La Bastilla Llamada is a mild coffee, toffee-sweet, and with roasted nut and tea flavors. Both are "coffee" coffees, crowd pleasers, if you will, and taste great in the middle roast range. Full City - Full City+ is a great level for espresso.
