    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?"

    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

      Someone just asked what I was going to do for coffee if everyone ended up with 2-4 weeks of home isolation...

      Another 10kg green ordered from BeanBay... now I either need to find some long life milk that steams well, or switch to espresso - failing that, lots of condensed milk for vietnamese-style [emoji2373]

        Latest word is that the COVID-19 virus incubation period may only be 5 days thus requiring a much shorter isolation period. I suggest that we don't panic buy and end up with Green Beanbay looking as empty as the dunny paper aisle at the local supermarket.

          Devondale UHT long life milk steams just fine for me on my Silvia. Besides it's the only UHT milk that my wife will drink.

            "are we there yet?" and "how about?" posts removed from the thread.

            We have lots of interesting beans on the water at any given time and currently some awaiting customs clearance and as soon as they arrive at the Snobbery we'll pack them and put them up in BeanBay.

            Trust us

              I've used it for "events" where refrigeration was limited and the taste and performance is good.

              Worth keeping a couple on hand.

                Hey Andy,
                Haven't ordered beans for a little while and I'm wondering if the 1kg size coffee bags will be available again?

                I'm guessing it won't be anytime in the near future given the current events going on

                  Phrostyboi where you located? You might find a nice CS member happy to go halves in a bag or two with you? I’ve done it before as helped me try lots of beans quicker without having too many greens in storage

                    I agree with Mb21, sharing is your best option for small amounts but the reason we have 2.5kg lots of green beans is that it keeps the cost down. We could potentially pack 1kg of beans for you and charge you the same

                    We land in bulk, pack in very high quality, same size packaging which is fast and efficient. For us to pack in multiple sizes you end-up paying a labour premium and twice as much packaging material which is both bad for your pocket and the planet. Half sized packaging typically costs 90% of the price.

                    Also, 2.5 kg isn't much coffee, it will produce 2kg roasted and we have found that most people need more than a kilo to find the roast profile that suits their taste the best. If you buy a kilo, try it light, dark and medium you have probably run out of beans. By having 2.5kg to learn with you can nail what you want in in the first half and roast like a pro for the second half!

                      I am wondering if Phrostyboi means 1kg vented foil coffee bags to put your roasted beans into? They are out of stock.

                        Hmmm... I could read it that way too now maybe?!?!?

                        Certainly needs a little clarification.

                        We have 1000 x 1kg bags, arrived without valves and we are scratching our heads what they'll get used for now. We'll have valve bags again one day!

                          Nice work 338,
                          I dropped him an email and yes it was foil bags.

                          Hey everyone...

                          [Contact Us] on the top and bottom of every page is always a way better way of communication something to me than a random post on the forum that I might see if a day or two... and then get wrong anyway

                            Hi guys,
                            Yes I was after the 1kg ones, ordered 12kg of greens as I'm roasting for a colleague now on the behmor

                            Ordered some of the indo, love a good cocoa bomb plus it adds nicely to a blend


                            • #15
                              I'm at work now and checked, yep, BeanBay is right and we have no other 1kg bags (just 500g and 250g).

                              I'll toss in some 1kg ones without a valve for you to try, they will expand a lot in the first couple of days but shouldn't explode and won't hurt the coffee or cause it to stale faster!
