  • BeanBay Green Bean Release July / August

    Just landed and available in BeanBay now:

    El Salvador San Ramon SHB

    El Salvador San Ramon SHB continuing with our Central American theme this month this is another great bean to try. Well graded and easy to roast, this is crisp and bright as an espresso and works a treat in milk based drinks too. This is one of those beans that works well through a wide range of roast depths and is full of stone-fruit in the lighter roasts. Play around to get different results.

    Ethiopia Guji Wamena Gr1

    Ethiopia Guji Wamena is a washed Ethiopian, hand sorted to grade 1. In the lighter roasts the red berries leap out, take it a bit darker and the body oozes off the group handle. This is one of those coffees that's a lot of fun to play with and would stand-up to a single origin blend of different roast depths too.
    This is a stunner for sure.

    Guatemala Jacaltenango SHB

    Guatemala Jacaltenango SHB (strictly hard bean).
    Jacaltenango is in the northern end of Guatemala, near the Mexican border and even as a green bean this is full of fruit and sweet aromas. The same ripe coffee fruit sweetness appears in the espresso shot along with some green apple acidity that lifts the aromas. Stunning as a long black but also works well in all espresso based drinks.
    Amazing value at this price.

    Panama Volcan Baru SHB

    Panama Volcan Baru SHB is a Central American stunner. Washed but not polished, it's a dense bean that takes a bit of heat early in the roast and depending on your finished roast depth, works well in espresso or filter.
    Clean, crisp, sweet and easy to roast.

    ...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 (not Friday) and BeanBay will calculate 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 for the cheapest per kilo postage. We also strongly recommend that you ship to an attended address (eg: work, grandma's house, the pub) to avoid delivery delays and hassle.

    Monday to Thursday we will ship everything same day that we have received actual payment for. 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 fee-free, PayPal payments are near instant and you pay their actual fees.

    Typically, if you want it faster don't procrastinate, just order earlier for way less stress and never have a reason to ask us "are we there yet?"

    Andy, the Nicaragua Mombacho SHG was introduced last month. Did you mean the Panama Volcan Baru SHB?

    Wow, found the Sulawesi Rante Kapua Torajah in the mix, too.

    It's all too tempting. Order placed.

      Wonderful selection there Andy...



      • #5
        I've been waiting for this! Placed an order and looking forward to it. There's just too much choice...


        • #6
          Great selection!

          Couldn't resist the Ethiopia and Panama. Looking forward to trying these while "working" from home )

          I added some of the very good indeed Dutch cocoa, which my wife and kids are now addicted to. Thanks for for that Andy! Can't go back to Cadbury now

          Just wondering ( for a friend) when this might be available

            You can discuss it in its very own thread here.

              Have just roasted the Panama and Ethiopia

              First impressions tasting as double ristretti straight after roasting are excellent in both cases

              Panama - toffee apple, roast almond and lime

              Ethiopia - pineapple, strawberry, lychee, milk chocolate


              Looking forward to trying across different brewing methods and with milk

                Hi all, I Got the Indian elephant hills last order and still have about a kilo. Tiger mountain is my fave single origin so went for the another Indian for my first try roasting in my popper, did not disappoint.
                I am looking at adding the Brazilian pulped to the collection but want to get another to go along with it, I drink with just a splash of cold milk and tend to prefer the smoother butterscotch Caramel rather than the fruitier beans so tend to stay away from the Africans, would there be a recommended third bean to add to the Indian & Brazilian So I can have a little go at a blend?

                  Sulawesi Blue is a ripper for body, Colombian Volcan is great for making a blend bolder.

              • #11
                Thanks, went for the Colombian in the end

                  Hello, I'm new here.
                  I've been waiting for Ethiopia roasted coffee for a week but it always sold out.
                  The notes in website says as bellow, I expect there is a new order batch for 19 - 23 of august. But it's still sold out. I'm wondering when is the best time to see the available stock?

                  Order before the fresh roast days to ensure you don't miss the batches. Ordering on the day can cause you to miss the roasts and have the longest lag to the next one.

                    Welcome. There are 4 different Ethiopian beans on that page. One of them (the Harrar) is definitely available. If you are referring to the other three at the bottom of the page.....those specific beans may never be re-stocked (although I'm sure some other Ethiopians will become available at some point). When Andy runs out of a particular bean they stay on the relevant pages with 'out of stock' on them for a while, presumably so that people know that they've gone.

                  I just roasted up the last of my previous bag of Sulawesi Rante Kapua Torajah, and a separate roast of the new bag I just got in. I'm still letting them rest before comparing them in the cup, but as green beans they were quite different.
                  The previous batch were quite well sorted, solid, clean beans. In comparison the new batch had a lot of colour variation going on, were lighter/less dense (not sure if less moisture or lower density), and more beans that I removed when sorting prior to roasting. The new batch also roasted much quicker on the same profile than the older batch.
                  I found it interesting to see that kind of variation season-to-season. I wish I'd taken a photo of the old ones before roasting to show the difference. It really does remind that this is a natural product and there can be so many things that create variation season-to-season.

                  I'm keen to try them side-by-side in a few more days to see what differences there are when roasted... just a bit of coffee experimentation to keep ISO interesting.

                    For sure. the wet hull processing that only really happens in the Indo region also means there are differences between bags from the same crop not just seasonal differences. Some other areas have lots of variation too (Ethiopian dry processed) but none more that Indo's.

                  The boat landed just a few days ago, customs were fast and today pallets of Elephants stomped into the Snobbery.

                  So excited to get these back into BeanBay, super sweet, easy to roast and always a crowd pleaser.

                    Hey Andy, any ideas which of the first two might suit better as a blend to a base bean?

                      The Ethiopia Guji Wamena roasted lighter would still stand-up with a base bean.
                      ...but the reason you home roast is to produce something that works for your taste, not mine!
