    Fresh Green Beans

    How can you tell if green coffee beans are fresh or have been stored in a warehouse for a year or more?

    Fresh Green Coffee

    How can you tell if green coffee beans are fresh or have been stored in a warehouse for a year or more?

    Wow, no answers yet so I'll take a shot

    1. Look at the color, should be, well, green. Past crop coffee starts to fade

    2. Become familiar with the growing seasons of each country. If you get Central American coffee in a warehouse in US in Oct/Nov, its likely to be nearly a year old.

    3. Ask the importer...get a copy of the bill of lading if you think he could be scamming you

    4. Taste the coffee -- if it tastes good, who cares how long its been sitting there. If it tastes bad, ditto

    great answer coffeenote........I have a quick question for you if you don't mind? When you roast coffee on a clay pot on wood....does that give the roasted a different aroma?
