Green coffee store (unroasted)
It was Rusty Obra's big dream: Transform the Ka'u District of Big Island into a highly acclaimed coffee area. When Rusty died, his spouse, Lorie Obra, dedicated her farming, milling and toasting to the handcrafts. Rusty's Bawaiian has received awards for the production and roast of coffee - and now presents extraordinary coffee from different parts of Hawaii.
Multiple Rusty's Hawaiian coffee brands scored 95 in Coffee Review World' s foremost coffee buyers' guide. Obra is one of ten global champions of the Röstergilde Coffee of the Year 2012 competition. It is also the Grand Champion of the Hawaii Coffee Association's 2011 and 2010 national cup contests and won the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe's 2010 Outstanding Producer Awards.

Storing green coffee
it is easy to store green coffee for you. The storage period for green coffee varies. Many people say 3 to 5 years or even think that coffee will get better over the years. Others believe that the ethereal oil and thus many aromas are gradually wasted.
Green coffee can always be kept for several month without any problems. Coffee should be kept as deep as possible, between 5 and 20°C at the same temperatures and not too moist or too arid. When opening the coffee or storing it in a non-airtight pouch or box, it is important that sufficient ventilation is provided and that you do not store the coffee next to foods or other strong-smelling objects.
Coffee can take on that scent. Our experiance is that toasted coffee is best 3 to 10 day after toasting. Store the coffee in a tightly closed can or sachet, preferably with an aromatic protective cock. Pour as much coffee as you need into your grinder or fully automated machine.
When possible, you should take coffee for 30 min after milling. So if you want to taste coffee with all its flavors, fragrances and aroma, you should either buy it from a small roastery that will tell you where it comes from, what it contains and when it was toasted - or just toast it yourself!
