Just wondered why they are called green. They are red when ripe and then they are put out to dry. Are coffee beens that are not roasted yet called green?
I bet the place accross from the Paroquia in Ajijic has them too since they roast their own coffee.

I see tha unroasted beens are called "green", I guess each language has its own way to look at things...

I can understand your confusion. In U.S. English, green has other meanings besides color. Further down the list of meanings are (according to Webster´s Dictionary):

8a : not fully processed or treated: as (1) : not aged <green liquor> (2) : not dressed or tanned <green hides> (3) : freshly sawed (green wood)
b : not in condition for a particular use

9a : deficient in training, knowledge, or experience <green recruits>
b : deficient in sophistication and savoir faire : naive
c : not fully qualified for or experienced in a particular function

You forgot Martians.     Very Happy (coffee drinking Martians, so as not to hijack)

Martians represent the color green. Unless those coffee-drinking Martians you reference are young and inexperienced (or lacking in sophistication which seems unlikely).  Very Happy

Thanks for the resource. Any idea what price range might be? I am hoping they will be less costly than having to order them on line.

A question: with all the different varieties of coffees available on today's market - WHY? I consider myself a bit of a coffee snob but I pay absolutely no attention to brand names. For me it is about the "depth and complexity of flavor" that our coffee maker produces with the roasted beans we choose to purchase.

A kilo of roasted coffee is approximately $125 pesos.

I was wondering about the cost of green coffee beans (not roasted), but also good to know the cost of roasted.

Go to el Arbol Café, introduce yourself to Lalo, the owner, and ask questions.  He installed a new roaster a short while ago and if he's not too busy he's usually happy to talk about coffee.

His number is 376 765 3908.
