where to buy green coffee beans in LA?
i just recently moved to la from sf and am missing the convenience of having sweet maria's right across the bay. i purchased some green beans from groundwork on rose ave in venice, but was disappointed in the quality. is there a sweet maria's type distributor in the la area? any other recommendations for green bean sellers? thanks!
You can call Martin instead at Kean coffee company in Tustin. He just returned from a trip where he scored some Yemen Haraz, It is Very limited though!

You might be able to buy them at the Conservatory for Tea and Coffee, in Culver City (near Sony Studios.) I'd call first.
i did some calling and here's what i found: diedrich's in santa monica only sells roasted beans. conservatory for coffee and tea confirmed that i could buy green beans from them for $6/lb. city bean is checking and will get back to me. thanks again for all of your help!
another update: sol from city bean called me back and was quite helpful. he carries a wide variety of green beans and pickup is available monday-thursday at 5801 washington blvd (call first).
