How to buy Green Coffee BeansCoffee beans - How do I buy green coffee beans?
Shopping for green coffee near Granada and Leon - Nicaragua Forum
I' m going to Nica in a few month and on a quest to return many different types of roasted coffee. Is there a café or shop selling green coffee in the surroundings of Granada and/or Leon and/or the area? They might get some dehydrated, but unroasted...but green, I don't think so.
Because the beans are plucked, they are allowed to be stored without perish. Plus, I think getting green beans into the states is complicated because of operational quarantine constraints. They should try Las Flores....on the Mombacho Finca, where they are kilned. Of course, you can buy green coffee beans in the open Mercado's.
Find the sellers who sell different types of dehydrated seeds, beans, maize, etc. When I buy ten quid each from my husband at the Mercado Mayoreo in Managua and fry them over a log fire, I take the beans to our mill to grind them. We' re enjoying a great cup of coffee here at Farmstay, so drop by if you want to try our delicious concoction!
These beans they're talkin' about aren't green....they've been dried...but not toasted. Beans don't last a whole day without drying....they decompose. The green beans are picked...first step....and taken to dry. However...the definitions can help you...you are looking for "unroasted"...if you ask for green, you can get a "no"...dried on the other side are available.
Green/unsweetened differentiation is good. Where I buy roasted coffee from in the States have used the words roasted and green interchangeable, so I will certainly ask for roasted coffee in Nicaragua (sin to star? is that as they would say?). I' ll definitely go to one or more coffee shops on Mombacho and visit the market.
I would love to find roasted coffee from Matagalpa and Jinotega without having to travel to these areas, I was reading that coffee from the North Highland is very good.
