    getting green beans in Singapore

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    hi all,

    does anybody know how to get quality green coffee beans in Singapore. I have just arrived in Singapore (from Europe) and the usual website where I used to buy my beans from (sweetmarias) does not ship to Singapore. Any good local shop or website willing to ship to Singapore?

    Cheers!

    Hi Alekk,

    Hasbean from the UK ship anywhere. I've never tried their greens, but their roasted beans (all of which are available in green form) were uniformly very good when I purchased them in the UK. Not sure how economical it will be though. Can't post a link to their site, but you won't have trouble finding it. You'd think there must a 'more local' source though.
    Cheers

    Hey Alekk,

    I have recently been in a similar situation to you in Finland and had a bit of a rough time getting started. I started off getting greens shipped from Denmark which was pricey as hell, then Germany which was much cheaper but worse quality and recently I went to a small roastery in Helsinki and while he didn't advertise greens, he did sell them at a reasonable price. My advice is get in contact with a small roastery and they are often more than happy to supply them. I didn't find one roastery here that didn't sell them and only 1 of them actively advertised.

    Send some emails and lucky for us the coffee aficionados of the world are very accommodating. Good luck!

    EDIT: Just found this thread: http://coffeesnobs.com.au/general-co...resources.html

    worth going I agree.
    any ideas on green beans? tried many artisan roasters to no avail. I have a source but not too enthused. Bit of a shame.
