Welcome, home roasters! We offer only one kind of green coffee beans here: delicious ones!
What makes every coffee we carry unique? We choose the best of the best - the top farm in the best growing region of each locale or country. We never settle for good coffee, it has to be great. It has to knock our socks off.
And you can feel great about buying these coffees. Every bean is purchased at 100% Direct Trade, at the farmer's own set price. The farmers can net 5x or more profit from selling direct to companies like ours rather than selling to their own local coops, which often do not provide even a subsistence price. Fair Trade only provides a small margin over the current commodities pricing, which usually is not enough to make a difference in the farmer's well-being. 100% Direct Trade is the way to go to make every coffee purchase do a world of good!
You can browse our single-origin beans, which come from one individual farm or producer, or our pre-mixed blends, which are our own unique blends combining multiple beans for a result greater than the sum of its parts.
This website offers our most popular beans and blends, in the most popular sizes (1 lb, 3 lb, 10lb, and sometimes 20 lb). However, if you're looking for the best variety, the best value sizes, or the most detailed information about home roasting, we suggest you hop over to Len's Coffee. That's our specialized store exclusively for home roasters and small business roasters. Your first order from Len's Coffee is 15% off!
Below is a full list of all the items in all the sub-categories. This is useful if you want to browse everything, but you might find it easier to select one of the sub-categories above.

Costa Rica's Dota Tarrazu Region
"Tarrazu", like Champagne, has just been made a restricted term that can only apply to coffees grown in one small mountainous region. The Tarrazu region produces some of the most highly-prized coffee in Costa Rica. It is home to a variety of subspecies of Arabica, which are combined to create an exceptionally well-rounded and rich cup. One particular valley, called Dota Tarrazu, receives a slightly different amount of sun and rain, which results in absolute top-tier beans. Recently a crop from this micro-region, from a subspecies of Arabica called Gesha, was a Cup of Excellence winner and much celebrated. Learn more and browse our Costa Rica Dota Tarrazu coffees here.
