Hi Lwowiak,

I am new to the forum and am due to buy some green beans soon.  I am very interested in what fresh beans you currently have or are due to have soon.

I will send you a PM shortly.

Kind regards..

UPDATE.

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to provide an update on the Co-op. It is still going strong, and quite a few people have sourced beans from me. I have some exciting new developments coming up in the next 2-3 months and will provide more details once everything is fully organised. I have had many discussions on how to involve more people and also to allow them to provide input. This poses challenges as everyone has different tastes and expectations. More to come....
Price is always an issue, and usually the better the bean, the higher the price. There are exceptions, and I have sampled and tested some wonderful offerings. We purchased a small quantity to evaluate the beans and the suppliers, and were very happy with the results. No spare green beans from this purchase, as I insisted on payment upfront. The beans were excellent value, so we will have more in the future. Cupping scores are highly contentious, and everyone has their opinion. I find that if your preference is pour-over etc, then high scoring coffees are great, and some people are happy to pay the premium. When it comes to espresso, there are many factors to consider, with the experience of the roaster being paramount. In the future our offerings will be varied to include beans at the low end of the price spectrum. More later.

In the meantime, she who must always be obeyed has decreed that my pile of beans is too large and taking up too much room. We have recemtly moved into smaller, but newer premises, with storage space at a premium. I am therefore happy to move some of my beans at a reduced price. If anyone is interested, please contact me  and I am willing to work something out, depending on the volume. It comes out of my pocket, as there is no profit in this co-op, but domestic harmony is paramount. The alternative was to reduce the wine collection.

So, if you want some Central and South American beans, get in touch. I may be compelled to let some African and Indo beans go as well......
