Most specialty coffee shops use exclusively Arabica beans (You know, the stuff in the fancy valve bags) with the possible exception of the addition of Robustas in some espresso blends.

Since green coffee beans became popular, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) sued at least one company for false marketing and making unrealistic claims about weight loss. Senators on Capitol Hill questioned Dr. Oz for promoting green coffee beans and other “miracle” weight loss products without adequate scientific support.

The FTC is responsible for making sure companies don’t use misleading language to confuse and deceive consumers. And the FDA regulates ingredients and product labels. But dietary supplements don’t require FDA approval before they go on the market. Private companies are responsible for doing their own research and testing. The FDA may not get involved until reports of false claims or dangerous side effects surface.

GREEN COFFEE BEANS-AT THE SOURCE
The sometimes not so obvious reason that the quality of green coffee beans is so important is that even expertly roasted coffee can only be as good as its source.
This lot from the La Libertad region is a custom blend we put together from the coffees of small producers in the area. La Libertad is in the Huehuetenango Department, and already sits at a fairly high altitude of around 6555 meters. The farms making up this lot start at about 6755 meters, and are planted almost entirely in Bourbon, save a few Typica varietals mixed in. Production is handled locally at a small wet mill, and then the coffee is patio dried. The dry parchment is transported down to a dry mill in Huehuetenango town where it is sorted and prepared for export. We spent many hours at cupping tables in Guatemala and Oakland sorting through small producer lots from the region in order to construct this regional blend.
Arabicas are high grown (usually 8555 feet and up) with a much wider range of taste and, depending on the handling, are considered to be much better in quality.
Although we absolutely love our morning cup of Joe here in the ., darn it, coffee just doesn't grow here on the mainland.More pictures: «The green coffee effects radiation».
