just getting into roasting my own and looking for a source of green beans here in Paris. any suggestions and/or recommendations ?
i've considered ordering from a few of the prominent shops in the UK or US but so far the shipping costs i'm seeing on a 10ish pound (5 kg) order are prohibitive, often doubling the shipment costs or worse. it shouldn't cost £45 to ship 5 kg across the channel. anyway, if anyone knows of a good beans supplier with reasonable shipping costs that would be just as welcome.

I can confirm that Coutume will sell green beans. It's not something they list on their board but I talked to Tom, one of the co-founder/owners, and he was happy to accommodate my request. Good prices too!
