    BeanBay Green Bean Release - June 2016

    BeanBay Green Bean Release - June 2016
    Available in BeanBay now:



    The Indians are here!

    New beans have arrived (a little late but they are here) and well worth the wait.
    These are old pictures, the gotcha with the winter solstice is it gets dark too early to take pictures... I'll update the BeanBay pictures soon.



    India Elephant Hills A Grade



    Indian Elephant Hills A. This coffee hails from the Thalanar region well known for growing coffee, citrus and cardamom. Well processed and screened to A grade this is an easy coffee to roast and works well as a single origin or as a base for a traditional Italian style blend. Super sweet yet quite bold in milk based drinks. Wonderful all rounder coffee.


    India Elephant Hills Monsoon


    India Elephant Hills Monsoon AA grade large screen size monsooned coffee. The coffee is left to dry on racks slowly through the wet and windy monsoon season and this unique process yields a light weight, large size bean. Easy to roast it produces a crema monster in the cup with heavy bodied gelatinous crema and spicy, earthy flavours. Often enjoyed as a low acidity single origin or added to a blend to improve the crema.




    ...the required fine print...
    (with the exception of the 1kg Maui, 1kg Panama 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!

    Just bought some Maui Yellow Catura Ka'anapali Estate as an extravagance. Does anyone have any roasting tips for this? I only have one precious kilo so I'd like to get the roast right first time...

    I have shocking timing - I usually get PNG beans, but there was nothing when I ordered on Sunday... two days later, you have both Waghi AA and Mt Ambra! Never mind, I shall make do with Yirgacheffe for the next few months.

    The Maui is really well processed and super easy to roast. While it's understandable to be nervous due to the price you will get a great roast every time I'm sure.

    It's one of the softer beans so don't roast it too long or too dark.

    Enjoy!

    G'day Andy,

    I finally got myself a roaster and looking to place a decent order to stock up.
    Just wondering if you have any Idea when is the next lot of green coming in?
    Like more Mexican and Yirgs?
    A roaster friend of mine told me this is the time of year when lots of new green arrives is that correct?
    cheers!

    Put simply, if it doesn't show in BeanBay it doesn't exist (yet).

    We try not to give clues as to when things are arriving as international freight and customs clearances I have zero control over and everytime I say "this will be here in 2 weeks" my inbox explodes with "BUT YOU SAID" and "ARE WE THERE YET" emails.
    Again, if we can't touch it, it really doesn't exist.

    Yirg soon(ish), Mex later... there are about 30 different choices in BeanBay and $300,000 worth of stock here so if you can't find something you love in that lot you are snobbier than a coffee snob.

    That Mexican has been my pick for the year. Such a fantastic coffee. Looking forward to more of it, or whatever comes next.

    Andy, I'm dismayed to see Ghana Single Origin Cocoa has disappeared from Beanbay. Is it too hard to get now? It and your Double Dutch cocoa are critical ingredients in my home made ice-cream!
