I've been ordering green unroasted Dolce beans from Vivace for years and I enjoy it greatly. But just for a change, I wonder what green beans others recommend. I happen to like a bean that has good chocolate and caramel tones. I roast with a Behmor. Any thoughts on some other beans I might try? Thanks.

You could look towards some Brazilian beans definitely or possibly a Guatemalan or basically any coffee from that region.  They tend to be a little more chocolatey, but most definitely the Brazilians.  I would start at Sweet Maria's.  The only down side to them is that there is a minimum order of $15.  They give accurate descriptions of what you can expect from the coffee, and they also have a huge selection of coffee from around the world.  Hope this helps.

Yauco Selecto from Puerto Rico is MIGHTY tasty as a SO espresso.  Baking chocolate with a buttery finish.
