Happy Halloween! The scariest thing about home roasting is running out of green coffee and being stuck brewing the slim selection sold your local cafe or that over-roasted, oily commercial coffee from the grocery store. We curated this list of sub-six dollar coffees so you can stock up and the price will be the last thing to be afraid of. We always have coffees with low prices and currently offer about a dozen under six bucks. If you are an espresso drinker, most of these will be great for you as well!
