Hey Coffee Roaster, are you getting started with coffee roasting or just new to Genuine Origin (GO — that’s what most roasters call us)? Well first, welcome aboard! We’re so glad you’re here and honored to be part of your coffee journey!

We recognize that buying green coffee can be tricky — contracts, origin differences, different qualities, price swings, the C-market…you name it —make coffee buying…well…let’s say “unique” or perhaps, downright challenging. And that’s part of reason why we exist. So let’s try to unpack it all.

GO was launched to demystify and simplify the green coffee buying experience for coffee roasters. Why? Because we want you to buy with confidence, so you can spend more time on your passion (ie — Coffee Roasting or roasting green coffee) and grow your business. And hopefully we can grow right along with you.

To that end, we’ve put together some resources to help you get the most out of our unique supply chain and ordering system. We’re very different from other importers, mainly in that it is a lot easier to buy green coffee with us.
