I don't drink coffee but was told it was the best to take home for gifts. The coffee shop was full and they have a counter for buying bags of ground or bean coffee.

Tomoca sells roasted whole beans at the original shop in town and at their shop in the Radisson Blu hotel. I don't think they sell green coffee beans, just 2 or 3 types of roasted beans.
