Yee hah. Yemen and the Hue.
Released into BeanBay now:
Guatemala Huehuetenango is a high grown and well processed coffee meeting the SHB (Strictly Hard Bean) standard. Bright and lively granny smith type acidity when roasted to CS8 roast depths which tapers off as you take it darker into CS9. Mid bodied espresso shots that really cut through the taller milk drinks with dry, clean finish. Excellent Central American coffee with a good sized CS fan club.
Tanzania KVCG PEABERRY
Tanzania Kilimanjaro Volcanic Coffee Growers (KVCG) Peaberry. This is a collection of very well sorted peaberry beans grown by all the FairCrack village projects on Mount Kilimanjaro. The villages that contributed were Kyaurinde, Shinga, Kirishi, Masha, Ngumeni, Okaseni, Rononi, Njari Wami and Orera. All the peaberry beans were sorted from this year’s crop and packed in grainpro bags to export to CoffeeSnobs! Amazing coffee from one of the purest and most natural coffee growing areas on the planet.
Yemen Mocha Ismaili
Yemen Mocha Ismaili - It’s no secret, this my “stranded on desert island, you can only take one” coffee. Small beans which produce a surprising amount of chaff during roasting. This is the highest specialty grade from Yemen, very well sorted for a Yemeni bean an consistent in size makes roasting easy. Perforated drum roasters will lose a few beans and probably get a few stuck in holes but the results are worth it. In the cup you will get a viscous syrup of fat sultanas and spice an amazing lingering flavor that will have you wearing a trail back to the machine for more.
You guys were quick to see the post! I've only just hit send on the email, most CS'rs don't even know yet.
Too many good beans is a nice problem to have.
...the best way I've found to deal with it is to drink more so I get to the next hopper full faster.
Yeh I was keeping an eye out after your photos of the beans in bond....and I've decided that I can't go wrong with the Guatemala Hue or Jac as my Aeropress coffee (which I tend to use in equal proportion to espresso)....so this release was great.
In my VERY limited experience... i had this bean roasted from a local roaster here in the Barossa. it was YUM!
Ontop of that Andy absolutely nailed the description on this one.. I have been trying for weeks to work out how to describe it.

Yes!! Finally Yemen is back, not going to miss out this time - order placed!!!!
Bean there..... And .. Dun that!
I'm looking to place my first BeanBay order soon and just wondered if anyone could advise on how Guatemala Huehuetenango compares with Guatemala Antigua Los Volcanas which I am down to my last couple hundred grams?
We do coffee at farmers market on Saturday mornings at Magic Meadow and this week we used the Tanzania Kilimanjaro Volcanic Coffee Growers (KVCG) Peaberry
It was roasted on Wednesday so was still super fresh but the shots off the Australium lever were stunning. CS9 in roast depth, mid bodied, bright, clean and a little fruity... sweet in milk and great as a clean doppio espresso. (I drank way too many of those in the name of testing) and everyone else that tried it, loved it.
I'm sure CS'rs are going to saviour the whole crop of stunning Kilimanjaro coffees that we have on offer now and in the coming months.
Sounds great, roasted some KVCG today and it smells really unique. Beautiful looking beans, they puff up like honey smacks.
Thanks Andy for those appeasing reveiw "notes" on the KVCG.
I aim to get some roasted early in the week as well as the Yemen that arrived early Thursday morning.
Fantastic delivery time from Geelong to The Hunter Valley in NSW Andy and Aus Post, as I only ordered Tuesday night.
Just only need to hang out until next weekend to run them through the Strega.
We all need and have priorities, but...... NOTHING comes before coffee!
Yemen and KVCG coming my way, can't wait to give them both a try! Thanks again for sourcing such wonderful coffee's for us all, Andy! :-)
The meaning of life... find something that you love, and then let it kill you... Death by Yemen i think.
How does the Guatemala Huehuetenango compare with Guatemala Jacaltenango? I really like the Guatemala Jacaltenango
The Huehuetenango exists and the Jacaltenango is gone?
The Jacal was fruitier, both have a similar brightness and would be fairly comparable side by side.
Both great coffees which is why we have 'em!
Any tips on roasting the Tanzania KVCG PEABERRY?
Next time I will go with a bit more heat early on / less time to FC and drop 1 degree or so earlier.
When you place an order at 12pm, its packed by 1pm and shipped by 2pm.. I have to give it to you Andy. Thats what I call good service.
+1 mine arrived in Queensland within a couple of days. Thankyou Andy.
We amaze ourselves sometimes with the speed we can continuously get stuff out and to the destination.
It's what we do really well and have a lot of pride in getting it right on every order!
BeanBay raises my expectations to unrealistic levels in regards to all other E commerce
My experience is that Andy's packages to me (Startrack ground) arrive faster than AusPost Express Air from anyone else! Days faster!
