    The appearance of green coffee from Indonesia can be jarring, especially if you’re used to washed beans from Africa or Central America. Why, many ask, does a Grade 1 Sumatra lack uniformity of color and/or bean size?

Sweet Maria's Green Coffee Sample Sets

Sweet Maria's Green Coffee Sample Sets
Nov. 7, 2019

Halloween's out of the way, Thanksgiving is around the corner and we all know what comes a month after that. The point is the holidays are here. For most of us, this means the start of holiday procrastination and the denial that you will be buying last minute gifts. For those of you that don't procrastinate and those of you that do but are trying to change your ways, we present to you...green coffee.

Green coffee's shelf life is impressive, so if you stock up now, you can store and roast your coffee throughout the holidays and beyond. This means if you are giving home-roasted coffee as stocking stuffers, everyone on your list gets your freshest roasts.

Deciding on what coffee to buy can be challenging especially if you are distracted by too many good choices.  For your convenience, we have curated a few  Green Coffee Sample Sets to suit your needs. Espresso, decaf, chocolatey coffees, fruity coffees or just a great mix of coffees from different origins.

 

Green Coffee Sample Set - Choose between our 4 or 8 pound options - We include coffees from Indonesia, South America, Africa and Central America in these Sample Sets. If you choose the 8 pound option, you just get more of each.

 

Green Coffee Sample Set - Decaf - If you drink decaf, you know that a lot of coffee companies treat decaf as an afterthought. We think the fact that it doesn't have caffeine doesn't mean that it shouldn't taste great. We think all our decafs are delicious. Please pay extra attention when roasting them because green decaf is darker than non-decaf coffee and first crack can be a bit softer.

 

Espresso Sample Set - This set consists of coffees from our long list that are all are great for espresso. The 4 pound espresso set will be all or mostly Sweet Maria's blends and the 8 pound set will have single origins included.

 

Box of Chocolate Sample Set - If you're a fan of those deep, dark, creamy, chocolate roast tones, we have put together a convenient set of coffees to keep the Willy Wonka tastes flowing. We plan on circulating other coffees with chocolate notes into this set so check back once in a while to see what chocolatey coffees we have to offer!

 

Fruit Basket Sample Set - Our Fruit Basket is for fans of fruity notes so if you are into sweet berry, stone fruit, citrus or tropical tastes, expect a little Carmen Miranda in your cup with this 4-pack. Like the Box of Chocolate, we will circulate other coffees with fruit notes into this set as others sell out.
