Cost of green beans
« on: 24/10/2017, 10:45 PM »
I have read on various posts that some are purchasing green beans to roast because it is cheaper than purchasing the roasted beans.  I am limited on where I can purchase green beans in my area but the retailer's cost for green beans for me is the same as the roasted beans (By weight).  Since there is a loss in weight when roasting, it seems to me that the cost of the green beans has therefore increased.  I'm not complaining too much because I really enjoy roasting my own beans.  Just curious if there are retailers selling green beans at a lower cost.

A KKTO roaster was built in Saskatchewan  recently
I am sure that Sweet Maria’s will ship to you - but you will need to consider currency conversion

You can also search the local version of the Trader classifieds
Also EBay sellers are plentiful if you want to go that path

you can try your local coffee roaster or else search online and look for something that fits the bill and is not too expensive including shipping

best,
