    BeanBay Green Bean Release - December 2013

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    December 2013
    Released into BeanBay now:


    Ethiopian Limu

    Washed but like many Ethiopian coffee beans not graded so you get a range of bean sizes.
    Fruity, slightly spicy notes with mid acidity and a light body. It produces a really interesting coffee through a range of roast depths and is well worth having in your bean pool.

    Tanzania Njari Wami

    This is from another of the "FairCrack villages" on Kilimanjaro. This is a large well graded bean with a lovely coffee cherry aroma even as a green bean. When roasted it produces a bright, lively espresso shot with some of the coffee fruit sweetness remaining. Amazing coffee from a village that had never previously produced specialty coffees at this level.




    Guatemala Huehuetenango


    This 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 and the new stock landed at an even better price making it amazing value too.




    Enjoy!

    Thanks Andy - placed my order on Tuesday and coffee arrived friday morning in Brisneyland!! I've already roasted a pound of the Tanzania Machare Estate, and it looks lovely at a CS9. Absolutely stoked with the turnaround, so I could play on the weekend. Keep up your great work.

    HI Andy,

    just wondering what is happening with the Peru Ceja de Selva Estate beans, they have disappeared from green bean and roasted beans?

    I have run out of beans and am having withdrawals..........tried to go with Fiefy's latte art for my last order but its just not the same.

    thanks

    Andrew

    Wow, you must be hanging out to post your first message for the best part of 6 years.

    The stock of PCdS Estate has sold out. Hopefully Andy will see this and respond but you're best off emailing him.

    If you are buying roasted, the "Brazil Premium Bourbon" might be closest in style to the PCdSE

    Laughs, yeah I like to ease into these things.

    thanks for the advice in the Brazil Premium Bourbon.

    Hi Andrew,

    The Peru Ceja got caught in the wharf backlog during the Christmas / New Year period and should clear this week.
    I had other beans arrive this week and a pile of stuff is queued which should arrive in the coming weeks.

    This is a silly time of year for international freight and generally it all settles back to normal insanity about Feb... unless of course you talk about imports via China in which case the Chinese New Year drags that till March.

    Punchline... Peru Ceja will be back soon.

    Cool. I just grabbed some beans the other day but when they arrived and I stored them, I realised I have been using a lot more than I have been replenishing.
    So when the Peru clears, I might jump on that too!

    No worries Chokkidog. I must say it was a struggle in 40+ temperatures but luckily this week is much more human working conditions.

    Just a quick note to everyone waiting....

    The Jan BeanBay is still in the air. Typically we aim for mid month but January is always a little crazy with the docks and freight companies shutdown in the new year and then backlogged till the end of the month.

    Stuff that should have cleared customs last week is still pending and will filter through in the coming days (I hope).

    With any luck next week we can touch it and will post up a new thread when they are available.
