    BeanBay Green Bean Release May 2017

    BeanBay Green Bean Release May 2017


    Available in BeanBay now:


    El Salvador Finca Dorinda



    El Salvador Finca Dorinda is high grown clean and easy to roast. The high density can make the beans slow to start so don't be surprised if the roast takes a little longer.


    In the cup as an espresso it's bright, zingy with some subtle sweetness, similar to a ripe granny smith apple. Mid bodied, it has a creamy mouthfeel and a short, crisp finish. In milk based drinks it really cuts through where some other single origins would disappear.


    Great value Central American coffee.


    Panama Geisha - Don Pepe Washed



    Panama Geisha from Finca Don Pepe is one of the best known Geisha coffees in the world, and an award winner in competitions all over the globe. Now in its 5th generation of farmers, the Don Pepe Estate has been growing coffee for nearly 120 years and this is the bean that really put them on the map.


    This is a fully washed process (unlike the natural process offering also available here). The same estate, same varietal just a different processing technique results in a very different coffee in the cup.


    I have been drinking a lighter roast (CS8) of this in the Brazen for the last couple of weeks and it's sweet, juicy and full of peaches. In fact its so peachy, the first impression is more like drinking peach nectar with a coffee aftertaste.


    Stunning coffee and half the price of it's natural processed sister (due to lower labour costs and higher production volume). Enjoy!


    Tanzania Morogoro A




    Tanzania Morogoro A is a central Tanzanian bean, nicely sized and well graded. Morogoro is one of the closest growing areas to the freight port of Dar Es Salaam so it can get to market at a very good price as reflected here.
    Easy to roast and in the cup it's mid bodied, crisp and clean finished. Enough there to stand-up in milk without overpowering it. Lovely coffee.





    ...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. If you want it faster, don't procrastinate and please order earlier!



    Enjoy!


    Andy.

    Time to restock!
    I cant believe how cheap the beans still are !
    I travelled to kenya and tanzania last year and you wouldnt believe how difficult transport is in this area.
    200 km doesnt sound far from port and maybe that road might be more established but costs for transport would make up a fair part of the purchase price.
    Anyway I think we are fortunate to be able to access these great beans ��

    For sure, all coffee is grown in remote areas at altitude and as you noticed, logistics of getting it from tree to cup can be extraordinary.

    I actually think the price of coffee is at least half what it should be to ensure the whole chain gets paid properly. There is a huge amount of work on the ground that isn't paid very well.

    Hopefully the "market" adjusts in the right direction and coffee growing is long-term sustainable.

    Need to order some more green beans, can anyone recommend a good bean for a milk based coffee, I've been on the India Elephant Hills for a while and they are great but recently tried the Kenya bold and I didn't really like it.

    The Kenya is a LOT more acidic, that might be what you don't like. Others love it.

    Similar in style to the Elephant Hills AA (softer, rounder, balanced) is the Peru. Has a huge following.

    Depending on what flavours you are going for, the Rwanda Nyungwe is a great choice for chocolate/cocoa flavours in a milk based coffee. That and the Nicaraguan Matagalpa, which I think is all gone now.
