When I tell people I love green beans, I’ll admit they look at me a bit weird. Of course, they’re thinking of green beans that come out of a can and are boiled on the stove. I’m talking REAL green beans – green, unroasted coffee beans. Below is a selection of different green coffee beans to help you get started home roasting.
