    BeanBay Green Bean Release - Feb 2016

    BeanBay Green Bean Release - Feb 2016


    Available in BeanBay now:


    Congo Maniyi




    Congo Maniyi. Democratic Republic of Congo (called DRC or just Congo) has been a troubled region for a long time and getting coffee to market has been impossible. Now things have settled-down we are starting to see a few offerings leave Africa and hopefully that expands in the years to come. This coffee from Maniyi is a ripper, very well processed and uniform and dried on raised beds. In the cup it's bold and crisp, slightly winy with drying finish. Sold in 1kg lots, not much available but lovely coffee.


    Costa Rica Miel SHB



    Costa Rica Miel SHB. This high grown Costa Rican was honey processed meaning the fruit was in contact with the seed much longer. During processing this looks like a sticky, gooey mess hence the term miel. The result in the cup is typically sweeter and fruitier and that's certainly the case here. Lots of colour variation in the green bean, but you can smell the sweetness even before roasting. Great coffee.


    Vietnam Thon Buon Chuoi



    Vietnam Thon Buon Chuoi Arabica. Vietnam is a huge coffee growing country with mostly Robusta grown at low altitudes but there are pockets of Arabica being grown in the highlands. This coffee comes from the lower northern highlands and is a sign of things to come. A little motley to roast but in the cup it produces a low acidity coffee with good balance, nothing amazing but a great value coffee.


    Of course there are plenty of other great coffees in BeanBay too, so you are sure to find something you love!



    ...the required fine print...
    (with the exception of the 1kg Maui the 1kg Congo and the 2kg Elephant Monsoon) All BeanBay green beans are packed in 2.5kg zippered cotton bags, perfect for storage for up to 3 years when kept in a cool, dark and dry position. We ship paid orders out from the Snobbery Monday to Thursday and BeanBay will show the available shipping options to your area. Larger orders are typically cheaper to freight per kilogram so we suggest ordering all your requirements at once. We also strongly recommend that you ship to an attended address (eg: work or grandma's house) to avoid delivery delays.






    Enjoy!

    With the current offerings, lots are talking about being roasted to CS9 or 10. Which brand are going to be most exciting roasted at lighter profiles for pourover?

    Andy,

    A quick question - I'm coming to Sydney next week for a few days. I'm considering buying some greens from you to bring back to NZ as the range available as well as the price/kg (even with exchange rate) is much better than over here. The problem will be getting them past quarantine in NZ. I'd declare them of course, but I know from having researched it in the past that imported green coffee needs a treatment certificate with it if it gets treated at source so I'm not sure I'd get them through.
    So I was wondering what you thought my chances were, and if maybe you'd be able to include some sort of paperwork with them to show that they've been treated. And also if I order them now through Beanbay will they be with me in Sydney by Friday at the latest? Thanks in advance for any help. Reply via PM if you prefer.

    Cheers,

    Leroy

    I'd imagine it should be Ok between Oz and NZ since both countries share similar quarantine protocols, as far as I know...
    Would be best to contact your quarantine service over in NZ first I'd reckon, re: packaging requirements, etc just to be safe...

    Yeah should be ok I reckon Mal, but want to be sure. I rang biosecurity yesterday, but they're only open Mon-Fri so will try again tomorrow.

    Hi Cedwa,
    mostly people are roasting for espresso so I know I tend to only mention in passing when something was also good at a lighter roast depth.

    The CoffeeSnobs - BeanBay - Green Coffee - Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi Naturals and the CoffeeSnobs - BeanBay - Green Coffee - Kenya AAA Bold have both been in the Brazen over the last fortnight at a lighter roast depth and both were beautiful.

    ...but as always with home roasting, the best thing you can do is experiment and find what suits your own tastes best, far better than following someone elses!

    So many questions, so few clear answers.

    >So I was wondering what you thought my chances were

    Not good (my best guess). You really want to do your homework first.

    >and if maybe you'd be able to include some sort of paperwork with them to show that they've been treated

    No. You are asking for a fumigation certificate, which would only be valid if I fumigated your order after packing it (and that's not happening here)

    >And also if I order them now through Beanbay will they be with me in Sydney by Friday at the latest?

    Depends. What you order, when you order it, when you pay for it and how you are shipping it. We can get stuff into "Sydney" from overnight to a couple of days after payment with most shipping methods. Not knowing any of the quantities or methods I say... Order and pay on Monday before 3pm and you should have it Wednesday.

    Thanks Andy. I might leave it this time and do a bit more research to see if it's possible on another trip.
