    BeanBay Green Bean Release July/August 2019

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    BeanBay Green Bean Release July/August 2019

    Available in BeanBay now:


    Zimbabwe Chimanimani A



    Zimbabwe Chimanimani A is a washed and well processed bean. 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.



    Malawi Malindi A



    Malawi Malindi A is a lovely processed bean from a troubled, land locked country. We have only landed a few Malawi coffees over the years as they are very hard to get out of Africa but it's always worthwhile when we do. Washed, well graded and dripper irrigated this really is a stunning coffee from a hard to grow region. Easy to roast and bright in the cup, taken to darker roast depths has a red wine acidity with dark cocoa flavours. Great coffee.



    Dominican Republic El Cibao Altura



    Dominican Republic El Cibao Altura A grade is an interesting coffee grown in their favourite growing region.
    Grown at their highest altitudes (Altura) and then screen graded it's a great bean to roast. These weren't hand sorted at origin so there are a few beans that you might want to remove before roasting (easy enough to do). In the espresso shot it has really good body which is unusual for a Central American bean yet retains the crisp finish you would expect. Great value Island coffee at this price.




    Costa Rica Miel SHB



    Costa Rica Miel SHB is another coffee from the premium region in Costa Rica, Tarrazu and Honey processed by the good folks at Coop Dota.


    This high grown, hard bean Costa Rican was honey processed leaving the fruit in contact with the seed much longer. During processing this looks like a sticky, gooey mess hence the term miel. The result in the cup is typically sweeter and fruitier and that's certainly the case here. You can smell the sweetness even before roasting and the body in the cup is greatly improved over the traditional processing. Stunning coffee and great value, a must try.




    India Monsoon Malabar Gold




    India Monsoon A 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, added to a blend to improve the crema and often the secret ingredient in an Italian espresso blend. Due to the physical size of the beans this is packed in 2kg lots.



    Hawaii Kona Waiono Fancy



    This coffee hails from the most famous of the Hawaiian coffee growing islands, Kona. It was grown and processed in Waiono Meadows and arrived with official government certification that this meets the fancy grading and is not a forgery (which is a real thing with Kona coffees). It’s a fully washed coffee, very clean almost polished appearance and is easy to roast even with the added pressure of the expense. I took it to a careful CS8 and found very smooth, clean and balanced and quite similar to a Jamaican coffee in style. Crazy expensive but is one of the very best coffees produced on the Kona Island. Packed in 1kg lots so you don't need a 2nd mortgage.





    ...the required fine print...
    With the exception of the more expensive 1kg lots and the bulky 2kg Monsoon coffees, 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 all 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 and 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, please just order earlier, less stress and never have a reason to ask us "are we there yet?"


    Enjoy!

    Quick question - Can I make an order & request for a future roasting date? Eg order today for Sunday’s roast?

    If not, I can just wait until Friday to order!

    Not really, it's guaranteed to end in tears or at least an oops.

    Just order after Wednesday night and BeanBay will show Sunday as the next roast date.
