    BeanBay Green Bean Release September/ October 2017

    BeanBay Green Bean Release September/ October 2017

    Available in BeanBay now:


    Home Coffee Roaster Competition 2017



    Purchase this as an entry into the 2017 Home Roaster Competition.
    (see BeanBay and the News section of the forum for full details)


    Cuba Turquino



    Cuba Turquino is motley looking sorting with a range of bean sizes but clean and washed. This Cuban coffee is very good to roast and produces an espresso full of spicy notes and black tea tannins at a CS9 roast depth. Interesting coffee and hard not to do a cigar association of tobacco, leather, wood and spice as the lingering flavours retain a drying malty and peppery finish.


    Zimbabwe Chimanimani AA+



    Zimbabwe Chimanimani AA+ is a washed and well processed bean that is graded up to AAA in size.
    Easy to roast and in the cup you will find a Kenyan style espresso, crisp, and winey but a clean finish with some dominating mid-bodied toffee flavours lingering. Another excellent African coffee. It's been a couple of years since we last landed this and the current crop is every bit as good as the 2015 was.



    ...the required fine print...
    (with the exception of the 1kg Geisha's and the 2kg Monsoons) 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, which of these would you recommend as a filter?

    I'm the wrong one to ask that question, I think nearly everything works great as a filter and they are just different!

    There is a history on the internet that specific coffees are labelled as only suiting a specific brew method. I don't agree and I think any coffee roasted well will work in any brew method. The exception to that rule is that some of the darkest roast depths will only work in espresso based drinks as often slower brew methods pull too much "BBQ" from the bean.

    As we speak, I'm drinking a fruity Harrar from the Brazen but I would happy if it was a clean, crisp Zimbabwe too.

    Well, it took me a couple of weeks of reflection but I went for the Turquino in part due to its excellent reputation on the internet. Looking forward to it, and thanks for digging these things up for us!

    Cool

    All I can say after having ploughed through half my bag of turquino is it's highly addictive
