Thought I would pass this on

Depanneur B&B, 5902 Sherbrooke West apparently has Ethiopian green coffee

I did not have a chance to check.. I didn't find out until after I had already gone past the place six times during a research trip :roll: I was even across the street trying to visit the east African restaurant but it was closed. :(

My trip is finished so, if anyone has a chance to check, please update the thread. Thanks.

I can confirm that B&B depanneur in NDG has green coffee.

They sold me some Limu packaged. CDN$15 kilo. A bit higher than Toronto prices.

There was a second cheaper coffee for $10 but I didn't ask about it. I saw borer holes in those beans.

They also have jebenas, cini sets (little cups to drink from) and the handy roasting pans... a round dish with a long handle for roasting coffee. Two sizes.

They have been going 2 years and they didn't know of any other place in Montreal.

Note that East Africa restaurant across the street opens at 630pm. I was too early again!

UPDATE: I pan roasted these a couple times medium dark and have enjoyed some nice americanos.
