    BeanBay Green Bean Release February / March

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    BeanBay Green Bean Release February / March

    Available in BeanBay now:


    Indonesia West Java Gr1



    Indonesia West Java Grade 1 is a fully washed, triple sorted coffee and basis of the world's most famous coffee blend "Mocha Java". The Mocha is Yemen and not available but substitute with Gambella or Harrar and you'll be pretty close.


    Clean, easy to roast and in the darker roasts becomes a low acidity, fat bodied cocoa bomb with a mouthfeel you can nearly chew.


    Great coffee as a single origin or experiment with creating your own Mocha Java.



    DR Congo Virunga Park



    Democratic Republic of Congo Virunga National Park is close to the Uganda and Rwandan borders and is best known for Mountain Gorillas. Coffee export from this area has been difficult through years of civil unrest in a crazy part of Africa but luckily for us, the coffee is flowing again.


    Well processed washed beans that have been hand sorted for defects and you will find a range of natural sizes as they don't have the production volumes to size grade.


    I found this really popped with a slightly darker than medium roast (CS9-10) where the deep cocoa and umami flavours pulled though milk beautifully. Drinks like a low acidity Kenyan. Great coffee and well worth supporting the locals as they rebuild their industry.

    Kenya AA



    Kenya AA Screened to a large AA size this washed and well graded bean roasts really well. Like many Kenyan coffees it will end up darker for the same given temperature so roast by probe, not your normal colour depth. In the cup it is crisp, winey and dry finishing, just like I remember great Kenyans to be.

    Sulawesi Blue Triple Sort



    Sulawesi Blue has an amazing deep blue green colour from this wet hulled and hand sorted Sulawesi bean. Easy to roast, requires a fair amount of heat early then a tapering heat curve before dropping at around high CS9. Light acidity, thick body and a little spice in the finish. Stunning as a single origin or a blend base.




    ...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 can a day or two for your payment to get to us even though your bank took it from you instantly. Osko payments are near instant and free, PayPal payments are near instant and you pay their fees. Typically, if you want it faster don't procrastinate, just order earlier, way less stress and never have a reason to ask us "are we there yet?"




    Enjoy!

    The Kenya AA and the Sulawesi Blue just landed late and have been added into BeanBay and in the above post.

    Hopefully that stops the "are we there yet" emails too

    Enjoy!

    Sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find an answer using the search: Do you have any plans to try out some of the carbonic maceration processed greens?

    Tried them, didn't like them enough to purchase and certainly didn't like the price.

    Doubt we'll be seeing them here until they move from "hipster trendy" to "reasonable value".

    Thanks for the reply, Andy. I hadn't seen anywhere to buy the greens in Australia so had no idea what sort of ballpark the price is. Might take a while to get to reasonable value because the only people I can see selling them roasted are ONA.
