Shop with green coffee beans

Hi everybody!


Does anyone know a shop anywhere in Switzerland selling green coffee beans, which would be open tomorrow?
I ordered some online as a Christmas present and it seems like they won't arrive in time.

Re: Shop with green coffee beans

You could ask here: https://www.schwarzenbach.ch/ in Niederdorf in Zurich.
They sell many different sorts of teas and coffees (and dried fruit and grains, seeds and nuts) from all over the world, and right next door they do their own coffee-roasting.

Was just going to suggest the same place. I was there 2 weeks ago and reckon they have almost everything you could imagine relating to coffee.

There's also Roast Rebels https://roastrebels.ch/partner-zuerich-kaffeewerkstadt

And Original Food https://originalfood.ch/category/kaffa/

Re: Shop with green coffee beans

Kaffeewerkstadt (https://kaffeewerkstadt.ch/produkt-kategorie/kaffee/) does seem to have "raw" coffee you can roast yourself.

I usually by ready-roasted coffee for my parents there - I don't drink coffee myself.

The shop and the staff seem very nice, though their focus is obviously on the brewing-machines and not the coffee.

Re: Shop with green coffee beans

Thank you, it seems like everything which could sell green coffee is closed tomorrow/next week.

Re: Shop with green coffee beans

ETA: Oh wait - on looking again it says the Cafe Verde is roasted... As I don't know anything about green coffees, maybe I have the wrong end of the stick?

Anyway, call them and ask what their Cafe Verde is.

Kaffee Rosterei Drei Herzen in Einsiedeln SZ carries a green coffee bean:
https://www.dreiherzen.ch/kaffees/

Chances are they might be open tomorrow, as Einsiedeln is a big Christmas tourist town - give them a call.


Unfortunately I'm in the US, so can't help get the beans to you if a trip into the wilds of Zwentralschweiz is not possible for you. But maybe another EF Schwyzer might be willing?

Re: Shop with green coffee beans

I'd phone up Be You Café close to Frauenfeld train station, and kaffee-erlebnis.ch in 8560 Märstetten (a very short train ride away in direction of Weinfelden/Romanshorn) first.

If that fails, perhaps search for "Kaffeerösterei". Zürich city aside there's one in Winterthur (Küng, they can probably be of service if can pick up), Schaffhausen, Konstanz, Waldshut-Thiengen, Singen, etc. Schwarzenbach (which was my first thought as well) may be far from the most convenient.

Re: Shop with green coffee beans

Thank you for all the suggestions!
Most were (or still are) on holidays, but a kind soul found some green beans, and helped make this Christmas a little bit more filled with joy and happiness

Re: Shop with green coffee beans

Do you mean a kind soul in one of those suppliers? Or did the magic of EF work for you?
