Selected Green Coffee Beans in the UK - for Home Roasting

Green Coffee Beans or Unroasted Coffee Beans have become popular among coffee enthusiasts and aided the coffee industry in its steady international growth in recent years. The popularity has been caused, firstly, by the tendency growing for some coffee lovers for roasting coffee at home.

This has become a popular trend across the world. We bring you Green Coffee Beans in the UK from selected UK roasteries so you can be assured of good quality.

What to Expect when Roasting Green Coffee Beans at Home

Wherever the roasting of the green unroasted coffee beans takes place, the coffee bean will actually expand to nearly twice that of what its initial size was. It will also change colour and density as it takes in heat. 

The colour turns to yellow and then to a light cinnamon brown. At this point, the coffee beans will start to crack, just like popcorn does.

As coffee is grown in different parts of the world, varying climate conditions and other factors also play a role in the flavour and tones of the final product and how the beans are processed.


As mentioned above, single-origin coffees from different regions and climate conditions produce green coffee beans with different flavours and tones. 

This provides the exciting opportunity to experiment with making our own blends by mixing these origins in various proportions and adjusting the length of the roasting time. 

If you have not done this before, give it a try and come up with your own favourite blend! Follow the information provided below. You will find it easy to do. 

How to Roast Green Coffee Beans at Home.

Roasting green coffee beans at home is easy to do. There are three methods to roast them:

  • Use your kitchen oven. Be listening for the first crack for a light roast or the second crack for a dark roast
  • An electric popcorn popper works very well for very small batches. 
  • Buy a home coffee roaster. 

Watch the video below for details about the last two methods.
