  • BeanBay Green Bean Release - April 2016

    BeanBay Green Bean Release - April 2016
    Available in BeanBay now:

    Panama Finca La Mula Geisha


    Panama Finca La Mula Geisha Special Reserve
    Possibly one of the most awarded coffees in the last year, it won the "Best of Panama" competition, it was the highest scoring coffee review coffee for the year and Gridlock roasted it to win gold in the Golden Bean single origin espresso category.
    Yes, this is a very special coffee.


    Stock levels are tiny and the price is high due to import duties, permits, freight fees on such a small lot but if you are lucky enough to afford to try it you should be blown away.


    Honduras Montana de Comayagua


    Honduras Montana de Comayagua.
    This large bean, fully washed, high grown Honduran coffee is a ripper.
    Most Central American coffees can be a little thin but this one has a surprisingly good body. In the lighter roasts (CS8) the zesty citrus peel acidity shines through, taken a little darker (CS9) it becomes crisp, green apple like acidity. Really interesting coffee that works in a wide range of roast depths and should work in a wide range of brewing styles too.



    ...the required fine print...
    (with the exception of the 1kg Maui, 1kg Congo, 1kg Panama 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 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.


    Enjoy!

    I'll tell you what, you wouldn't want to drop a bean or two of the Panama when transferring to the roasting chamber

      No argument at all with the pricing, at the end of the day the market has set the price and I imagine Andy's price is as good as you will find it for anywhere -BUT!...its the rule of diminishing returns, a coffee that costs nearly 20 times as much as many fantastic coffees from regions all over the world cannot be 20 times better. Given my experience with Giesha's I would also say its a very different flavour profile and it wont be to everyone's taste. Kudos for Andy giving us the chance to try it if desired, but I for one know my $280 is better spent elsewhere!!

          Its only $5.60 per 20 gram double shot. Sounds like a bargain if you look at it like that. I have paid that much for "coffee" at a cafe and it was rubbish.

          Cheers

            Guess it depends on your definition of a bargain.

            As Jules remarked in Pulp Fiction "may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know" @ approx .33 cents a gram roasted waaaaay too rich for my blood.

            No matter, I'm sure Andy will have no problem finding buyers, to those who do take the plunge, enjoy it, oh, and don't over cook em.

              The Panama would be worth it just for the cool drawing of a dog on the packet

                    Good point but don't forget to allow for 15% weight loss when roasting. That pushes it up to about $6.60 per double.

                      Spot on Flynn, see my post, #6, did the arithmetic and like you got .33 cents a gram = $6.60 for 20 grams.

                        Oops. You're correct , I didn't take into account the moisture loss.

                        Would be good to go in with a few people to make the cost more palatable (pardon the pun)

                        Cheers

                          Should we also be making an adjustment for grind retention and resultant wastage?

                            If that's what floats your boat.

                            PS !6% is significant.

                              So it would be $6.60/0.84= $7.86. Or $6.60 for Nino owners.......
