    BeanBay Green Bean Release - Jan / Feb 2017

    BeanBay Green Bean Release
    January and February 2017


    Available in BeanBay now:


    Guatemala Jacaltenango SHB




    Guatemala Jacaltenango SHB (strictly hard bean). Jacaltenango is in the northern end of Guatemala, near the Mexican border and even as a green bean this is full of fruit and sweet aromas. The same ripe coffee fruit sweetness appears in the espresso shot along with some green apple acidity that lifts the aromas. Stunning as a long black but also works well in all espresso based drinks.

    Nicaragua El Recreo Honey


    Nicaragua Finca El Recreo has been a family farm for a couple of generations and they pride themselves on producing great coffees.
    This particular one is a special miel (honey) process and you can see the additional fruit contact on the beans. The fruity aromatics on the green bean translates to the cup after roasting with a peach sweetness and a lingering depth that makes this a standout.
    Great coffee





    ...and we just cotton bagged the last of these, grab them before they are gone again...


    Colombia La Esperanza Geisha



    Colombia Cafe Granja La Esperanza Gesha Cerro Azul Grand Crue. This "Blue Mountain Geisha" (Gesha) coffee is one of the very best coffees that Colombia produces. Easy to roast, and at a CS8 it is sweet and balanced in the cup with a mid-high bodied viscosity that felt like velvet. It won the Coffee of the Year and Roasters Guild National Championship at the Speciality Coffee Association of America (SCAA) and according to the farm, Kenneth Davids scored it a monster 96.5


    Panama Typica



    This Panama Typica is fully washed and screen graded to A grade in size and SHB due to the high altitude it was grown. It's very easy to roast due to this grading and density.
    In the cup the syrupy body releases sweet stone-fruit flavours and a deep, long lingering coffee explosion across the palate. It's no secret that the Typica variety is one of my favourites and the one I select the most in blind cupping.


    Kenya AAA Bold



    Kenya AAA Bold is a Kenyan coffee like I remember but we haven't seen for years. Big beans, beautiful processing and every roast is a winner through a range of roast depths. At CS8-9 it is bright and crisp with granny smith green apple acidity. Great as a single origin espresso and exceptional in filter and long black drinks too. This is the bean that Sarah used to win Espresso and Milk based medals in the 2015 Golden Bean home roasting competition and you will quickly understand why the judges liked it so much.





    ...the required fine print...
    (with the exception of the 1kg Geisha's 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 and actual freight costs 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. Monday to Thursday we will ship everything same day that we receive payment for but please remember bank lag means it will take at least a day for your payment to get to us even though your bank took it from you instantly.



    Enjoy!


    Andy.

    The Kenyan AAA and Guatemalan sounds particularly appealing . Tried a few Kenyan of late and they've seemed to had an amazing punch berry/jammy flavours. Been going Brazen and cold brew to taste these. Great selection Andy!

    If you are enjoying the Kenyan style then you should also love the Jacaltenango, it's bright and fruity in the lighter roasts and makes a great Brazen brew too.

    It'd be wrong not to try both ;-) Order placed.

    At the rate our family and friends are drinking through the coffee at the moment I need to switch to roasting more myself instead of sampling other roasters beans :-)
    not that there's anything wrong with that
