    BeanBay Green Bean Release - August 2014

    BeanBay Green Bean Release - August 2014



    Honduras Montana de Comayagua

    Honduras Montana de Comayagua. This fully washed high grown Honduran coffee is a ripper. Most Central American coffees can be a little thin but this one has a surprisingly good body. In the lighter roasts (CS8) the zesty citrus peel acidity shines through, taken a little darker (CS9) it becomes crisp, green apple like acidity. Really interesting coffee that works in a wide range of roast depths and should work in a wide range of brewing styles too.


    Tanzania KVCG

    Tanzania Kilimanjaro Volcanic Coffee Growers (KVCG)
    This has been size graded to include flat beans and peaberry, the result is a blend that is easy to roast and produces great results. All of the beans have come from the FairCrack village projects on Mount Kilimanjaro and include beans from Kyaurinde, Shinga, Kirishi, Masha, Ngumeni, Okaseni, Rononi, Njari Wami and Orera.
    Amazing coffee from one of the purest and most natural coffee growing areas on the planet.



    Timor Leste Ramelau

    Timor Leste Ramelau is a certified organic, fair trade bean from one of our closest neighbours.
    We have had very few Timor offerings in the last 10 years, often the difficult logistics of Timor Leste mean that beans are spoilt before they leave the country. This one is a good one though. Mixed sizes but mostly large beans well washed and dried. In the cup it produces a milder, low acidity coffee with a mid body and well balanced.



    Cuba Escambray

    120_120_CubaEscam.jpg

    Cuba Escambray - often referred to as Crystal Mountain this well graded, washed and sun dried coffee is about as good a cup as you will get from Cuba. Malt, dry spice and a drying mouthfeel in the cup. Interesting espresso, excellent long black and would lend itself to other brew methods like filter, plunger and drip too.




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


    Enjoy!

    Nice one Andy. I think we've had that Honduran in BeanBay before if I remember correctly. The name looks familiar.

    The Tanzanian has a knighthood? Hang on, that's KCMG

    Good to see the villagers have formed a cooperative. The beans look well graded but given that it contains peaberries, does that mean they are generally small in size?

    err... sort of off topic for this thread HTB but yes, all those that were on the notification list were sent an email last week and since then the Metric Upgrade panel has been available in BeanBay...
    Well hidden in plain view ;-)

    The villages do a little of both. They sell as a single village and they also combine their beans into a bigger co-op to help get the volume for bigger orders.

    Small in size? Not huge, not tiny, screen 15 which is "normal" for most origins as opposed to all the small beans that some producers lump together.

    Hi Andy,

    Are green bean samplers still available? I remember having seen them in the bean bay before but can't find them now.

    Hi Andy,
    I tried to PM you haha. I was wondering if there was any JBM available for the next monthly listing? It seems to sell out quickly then become available again. I was guessing this might be because it has to be foil packed? I'd only be after the 1 bag. Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this.

    The "Contact Us" at the bottom of every page works a treat! ;-)

    JBM is in and out of stock through the year, BeanBay always shows the status and stock levels of everything and yeah, sold out at the moment. We won't land the next lot till closer to Christmas.
