Hello,I'm a coffee fanatic. I don't drink much but it has to be done right. does anyone have a place to recommend for getting roasted coffee beans? ( not ground coffee). Ideally a place in Limassol, or an online retailer with a good selection to choose from. Also, does anyone have any idea how to get unroasted coffee in Cyprus? Id love to try roasting my own.

As far as I know, there are many places selling coffee beans in Limassol, although I cannot recommend any. As for internet, there are literally dozens of online based retailers that are willing to ship to Cyprus - especially those that operate from UK (for instance - http://www.algcoffee.co.uk ).

Hello.I believe I've seen what you are looking for but not 100% as it's just something seen as I've been driving along.It's past the LInopetra traffic lights toward Makarios Ave on the left a little past Kartoudes.Very small shop so you have to look carefully

You can buy green (unroasted) beans from any of the roasteries, or you can ask them to roast the beans according to your own requirements.

Thank you all for your comments.

Dave giddy, I think I know the store you are talking about. I'll check it out.
journo: Do you know of any roasteries? Preferably not the kind that roast just Greek ( or turkish whatever you want to call it) coffee.

Thank you all for the comments I'll post on my experience once I start visiting stores and testing coffee.

Sorry DrTraveler, my knowledge of the Lemessos area is too limited to point you in the right direction!

I always buy Kenya beans from Starbucks. They are not lying on the shelf in the heat. They have a fast turnover, as sometimes they are waiting for them to come in.


You have to be careful with small shops that leave beans in the heat and that do not sell many.

So far I checked Alpha Mega, nothing there, they tried to convince me to buy a cheap espresso machine from them that only took pods. Alpha mega seems to be getting worse in the last few months.... My machine also does pods, but I don't like them. Sure they make ok coffee, but they are only designed for ristreto ( read the fine print ) and I don't like paying 45 cents per serving for average coffee. If it was excellent maybe.

I also tried Debenhams on the beach road. They had a better selection of ground coffee than alpha mega, but nothing un-grounded.


I'll do Starbucks if all else fails. I like Kenyan coffee myself, but I tend to try to avoid big franchises.

I thought I would post this back here for other people searching for the same info.

Yesterday I went to Nicosia to a place called coffee direct ( same as the web site www.coffeedirect.eu). This is an excellent coffee place. Lots of options, great coffee, good prices ( much much cheaper than Starbucks or coffee beanery) Highly recommended. I got my coffee and drove back to Limassol. Today as I was making my coffee I realized from looking at the boxes they have a store in Limassol too!!!!! I haven't visited that yet but I intend to. Here's addresses and phones.

Nicosia store: 27 Themistokli Dervvi, Tel 22660020. ( Starbucks + Sfinakia traffic lights take the north-east road ( Starbucks on your left) and it's on the right hand of the street 50m )
Limassol 9A Ayias Zonis 25-347154.


I should point out that another member of angloinfo, emailed me after reading this post telling me she has a store in Nicosia were she roasts coffees from all over the world. I intended to visit her too yesterday but I realized on the last min. that she didn't mention the name of the place, or the address in Nicosia. Just the location of a cafe in limassol that serves her coffee. I emailed back and will check that place out as well when I get the address of were she cells coffee beans.

There are several specialist shops in Larnaka selling a variety of freshly roasted coffee beans and grinding them singly or in combination for you. Including one very small-fronted shop on Piale Pasia, very close  to Larnaka Fort. The shop also sells nuts.
