Roasting your own coffee beans at home is quite simple. It takes about 5 to 15 minutes and you get the freshest coffee around. Green or raw coffee beans can be bought for $4 to $5 per pound, about half the price of the roasted kind. Look for fair-traded, organic coffee beans — it’s the metaefficient choice. Sweet Maria’s is an online coffee bean store that offers a huge selection of green coffee beans from around the world. They feature fresh coffee beans arrivals on their weblog. They mark fair-traded, organic beans with the abbreviation “FTO”.
They also have a coffee university where you can learn about coffee roasting, bean types and coffee brewing.
