Guatemala La Pacaya Typica is a clean, washed and well processed central. Easy to roast it will work well through a range of roast depths and is suitable for a wide range of brew methods. As an espresso roasted to CS9 it produces a well balanced, caramel shot that has a really nice lingering flavour. As a filter or aeropress coffee it stands up with a great mouth-feel and good body.

PNG Kainantu Organic

PNG Kainantu Organic is a semi washed coffee from the Eastern Highlands of PNG. It’s a chaff monster in the roaster and produces a bright coffee with a bigger body than you typically expect from a PNG bean. Certified organic at origin by NASAA and USDA for those that “need” a certified coffee but like most organic coffees, expect a few ugly beans. This works great as black coffee and really pulls through the milk based drinks too.


These and plenty of other great beans are available in BeanBay now.

Enjoy!
