Dear coffeegeeks,

Im from Montreal now living abroad in the northern part of Italy.  I am struggling to find good coffee grains (believe me!!) and would like to know what the best option would be:

1) Find a 3rd café in Italy or close in Europe and order grains from them (do you know of any good 3rd wave roasters in Italy, Germany, Austria, etc.??)
2) Order from north american roaster (do intelligentsia, 49th, Phil & Seb, etc ship abroad??)
3) Wait until I visit Montreal and load my suitcases with grains...


Thanks!

Well, in Europe there's always Square Mile.  I just don't know what their shipping fees are like.

There is a list of recommended roasters on home barista site which includes European roasters. I just looked it up. You can too.

I wouldnt recommend ordering from outside EU. To protect its own trade, there is a quite high tax on everything from outside EU. I dont know however, how good italian tax services is to find those items...
I think its a high tax and Im form Denmark... that should say a lot...

I will recommend Søren Stiller @ great coffee, denmark.

Otherwise I know a couple of roasters by reputation, but due to other reasons I mostly roast myself... which also could be an option.

I'm starting a business importing to the US from 3 roasters in Europe.

Trinci in Pisa - decades of experience and supply some of the finest restaurants in the world.  Andrea was the Slow Food expert adviser in Huehuetenango in Guatemala.  Italian style roasting, but remarkable coffee.  I love their Raffinato blend.

Alt Wien in Vienna - Oliver describes himself as solidly second wave.  Demeter certified, with a lot of biodynamic choices.  Imports directly from Henrique Sloper in Camocin, Brazil.

Paris - L'arbre a' cafe.  Hippolyte is a sommelier trainer by previous experience and his coffees are all single estate - more like fine wine in a certain sense - kind of challenging flavors.  Also supplies a number of Michelin Star restaurants (the ones that he woke up to the fact that great coffee makes a difference...)

Since you are in the EU, you can order from them directly w/o any problem.  

If you want their coffee fresh in the USA - come to me - europeancoffeesociety.com

$79. for a pound of coffee?
Now that is definitely out of my league.
