    BeanBay Green Bean Release March / April 2017

    BeanBay Green Bean Release March / April 2017

    Available in BeanBay now:


    Aceh Danau Laut Tawar


    Aceh Danau Laut Tawar is a naturally processed and sun-dried coffee grown in the Northern highlands.


    Being wet hulled it holds a deep blue green appearance and because it hasn't been size sorted so expect everything from small to elephant sized beans. Roasting is best with a slower profile to allow the moisture to equalise across the range of bean sizes.


    Roasted in the darker ranges (CS9-CS10) it produces a fat bodied, cocoa and fruit-cake style coffee and is excellent as a single origin double espresso or in milk based drinks.


    Another stunning Indo coffee that will work as a single origin or a big fruity bodied base to your blending.



    Mexico Vera Cruz Peaberry


    Mexico Vera Cruz Peaberry is a small, rounded peaberry bean that are typically sweeter in blind tests against their "flat" brothers from the same tree. I could never work out why they were sweeter, maybe it's caused by the high tumbling action during roasting or maybe it's more about the way they grow but either way, peaberry beans have a fan club all of their own.


    In the cup this is is a crisp, bold coffee that cuts through milk beautifully without any nasty aftertaste. Works well in a range of roast depths with cocoa really coming out in the darker roasts and the brightness in lighter ones. Excellent coffee and I doubt you could be disappointed with this in any brew method.



    Vietnam Lam Dong AAA


    Vietnam Lam Dong AAA comes from the northern mountains of Vietnam.


    Vietnam is famous for it's low altitude Robusta plantations but with recent government support the growers in the northern region are being encouraged to grow high quality Arabica beans too.


    This is a very large graded bean and it roasts easily. In the cup it's a mid bodied, smooth mouthfeel espresso with fairly low acidity making it a great espresso trainer. Nice coffee and processing with a bargain price-tag. Coffees like this will put them on the specialty map for sure.





    ...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.

    Just wondering if anyone has roasted these Mexican Peaberry's yet in a Behmor? I love the Mexican beans..., but nervous about having them fall through the drum? Cheers, Link

    I've not tried... but they should be fine in the Behmor drum. They are small but not "that" small.

    With beans like the Yemen (which can have some very small beans) a quick shake of the drum before roasting should get most of the tiny stuff out.

    I have... no issue at all. Maybe 1 or 2 fell through, no more.

    Roasted some of the Mexican peaberry on the weekend. None made it through the holes in the pasta pot in my kkto.
